— Most lanes of Interstate 85 North near mile marker 191 in Granville County were closed Tuesday morning due to an overturned tractor-trailer.

Motorists should expect delays in the area until about 10 a.m.

The driver was transporting 24,000 pounds of beef in the refrigerated truck when it went off the road, hit a bridge and turned on its side, authorities said.

The driver, whose name was not released, was taken to Granville Medical Center with minor injuries.
