Tractor-Trailer Loses Load, Shuts Down I-40 Ramp

Posted November 4, 2004 4:17 a.m. EST

— A trucker's wrong move caused him to lose his load near Hillsborough Thursday.

A driver lost control of his tractor-trailer, and it ended up dangling from the Interstate 85 ramp over I-40.

The truck was carrying recycling items, which wound up all over the road. No one was hurt in the accident.

As a result, the ramp for eastbound I-40 and a southbound lane of I-85 has been shut down. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes.
