— A truck tipped over on Interstate 95 on Tuesday morning, slowing traffic for miles.

The crash occurred in the southbound lanes near Exit 65 for N.C. Highway 82, near Wade, before 7 a.m.

Sky 5 showed a tractor trailer half on its side and heavy delays. At 7:45 a.m., all southbound lanes were closed, but they reopened by 8 a.m.

Backups were heaviest between Exit 61 and Exit 65.

As a detour, motorists can take Exit 65 to US-301 South, turn left onto US-301 South then continue for 5 miles before turning left onto Wade Stedman Road to re-access I-95.
