Wreck blocks I-85

DURHAM Durham police said the southbound lanes were completely shut down between the Club Boulevard and Roxboro Road. One northbound lane was also closed.

The accident happened at 1:45 p.m. when a northbound flatbed truck crossed the median and overturned in the southbound lanes.

Police said the truck was carrying a load of gray water-based paint, which spilled on the highway.

The truck driver told officers he was driving northbound on I-85 when a vehicle pulled in front of him, causing him to swerve, and strike a guardrail.

The truck driver suffered a hip injury.
