WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wondering why you or a coworker was late to work this morning? Blame an accident on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.

A pick-up truck overturned in the inside lane coming in from Brunswick County. Crews had to close the bridge for a while after 8 a.m. to flip the truck back over and clear the scene.

The driver of the truck was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. No word on his injuries. The driver’s mother tells WWAY the brakes on the truck gave out, and he ran up on the guard rail and flipped over.
