Overturned tractor trailer causes traffic headaches during Tuesday morning rush hour on Interstate 485 outer at Providence Road

The Interstate 485 Inner Loop is backed up in south Charlotte near the Providence Road because of an overturned tractor-trailer.

Charlotte Fire Department officials are advising motorists to take an alternate route.

The overturned 18-wheeler is blocking the ramp heading from Providence Road to the interstate. One lane of I-485 Inner is also blocked.

Officials on scene said the driver of the tractor-trailer was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. It is unclear what caused the wreck, reported the Observer’s news partner WBTV.
