COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — An overturned tractor trailer has slowed traffic on US 74/76 in Columbus County. Only one eastbound lane is open at the scene of the accident between Lake Waccamaw and Delco.

Highway Patrol says the truck carrying wood chips was heading east on US 74/76 this morning when the driver lost control, drove off the road, wound up in the westbound lane, overcorrected back into the eastbound side, hit a concrete culvert and flipped the truck. Investigators are not sure what led to the wreck, but they say speed was not a factor.

No one was hurt.

Crews are working to empty the wood chips from the trailer so they can get the track back upright and clear the scene.
