CATAWBA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A portion of Highway 321 in Catawba County was closed Thursday evening after a crash involving an overturned tractor-trailer.

The wreck happened after 5:30 p.m. on northbound 321 near Exit 43B to I-40. At the scene there was a single car with heavy front-end damage and the tractor-trailer, which appeared to have flipped over the median and almost down an embankment.

Officials said the car ran off the road, came back on and hydroplaned before hitting the tractor-trailer, causing a tire to blow. The tractor-trailer then jackknifed, crossed a barrier and flipped just feet from a deep ravine.

No injuries were reported.

Police have not said if any charges are being filed.

No further details have been released.
