UPDATE: US 421 North back open after crash


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Dispatchers say US 421 North is back open. The road was closed for hours into the afternoon after an 18-wheeler overturned in the curve before the Battleship North Carolina Thursday morning. It blocked one lane of traffic coming from Leland toward Wilmington. Highway Patrol says the driver has been taken to the hospital.

The crash happened around 8 a.m., but it took until mid afternoon to move the truck off the side of the road. The accident caused some back-ups on US 17/74/76 as well.
