A tractor-trailer overturned on Interstate 77 in Davidson Tuesday morning, threatening rush hour slow downs due to onlookers. The truck was on the shoulder and all lanes were open as of 6 a.m.

The truck overturned in the southbound just off of Exit 30 for Griffith Street, reported the Observer’s news partner WBTV. Troopers reported the tractor-trailer hit a white pick-up truck and overturned.

No injuries were reported. However, Charlotte TV station WSOC was reporting the Environmental Protection Agency has been called to the scene since the tractor-trailer is leaking fuel and anti-freeze.

The driver of the tractor-trailer told WSOC he was not hurt in the accident. He said he was on his way to Columbia, SC when his truck flipped over, it was reported.
