North Charleston police had to close eastbound lanes of traffic today at a busy intersection after an 18-wheeler overturned, according to a news release from police spokesman Spencer Pryor.

The driver of the truck was traveling on Remount Road to Rivers Avenue, the release said.

As the driver turned left onto Rivers Avenue, the trailer’s load shifted, causing the vehicle to overturn.

All eastbound lanes at Rivers and Remount roads were closed while the vehicle was being removed, the release said. The road was reopened to traffic shortly after 3 p.m.

No other vehicles were involved and no injuries were reported.
