Truck flips on I-485 ramp in south Charlotte

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A tractor trailer which flipped on an interstate ramp in south Charlotte blocked traffic for about four hours Tuesday afternoon. 

The accident happened around 11:50 a.m. on the ramp from the outer loop of I-485 to northbound I-77.

The truck driver sustained very minor injuries in the crash, a state trooper said.

When SKY 3 flew over the scene at noon, we saw the tractor trailer on its side blocking three lanes of travel.  Fuel appeared to be leaking from the cab. 

The highway patrol said the ramp should be reopened by 3:30 p.m.
