An 18-wheeler went for a wild ride on U.S. 1 near Wake Forest Tuesday afternoon.

The driver of the tractor-trailer said that he overturned his truck after a car cut him off. The truck flipped on its side and the lumber it was hauling slid off the back. The driver was not hurt.

Officers shut down the northbound lanes of U.S. 1 near the Wake-Franklin county line and rerouted traffic as they continue to clear up the boards.
