STATESVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

All lanes on Interstate 77 in Statesville are back open after a tractor trailer crashed and spilled fuel onto the median Wednesday night.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the tractor trailer broke an axle when it crashed on the north-bound side of the highway near Exit 50, East Broad Street, at about 8:30 p.m.

Both sides of the highway were closed for about four hours while crews cleaned up the fuel.

There is no word on injuries, or a cause.
