Wreck At I-95/I-40 Interchange Near Benson Cleared

Posted January 4, 2005 9:05 a.m. EST

— Traffic is moving at the site of an early-morning tractor-trailer wreck in Johnston County.

At about 5:45 a.m., a tractor-trailer traveling from northbound Interstate 95 on to westbound Interstate 40 overturned and lost its load of steel beams, blocking the exit ramp.

The tractor-trailer was uprighted and towed just after 7:30 a.m. Crews worked to clear the beams from the road and spread sand to soak up any diesel fuel that may have leaked onto the roadway.

No one was injured.
