CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – A portion of Interstate 77 northbound was temporarily closed Monday morning after a tractor-trailer overturned.

I-77 was closed between Remount Road and West Boulevard due to the crash, authorities said. WBTV has reached out to Medic to see if there are any injuries.

According to transportation officials, the road reopened shortly before 7 a.m.

Sunday’s winter storm has moved through the area, but temperatures that dipped into the 20s have led to icy roads and surfaces early Monday morning.
