The tractor-trailer is currently lying on its side and blocking some right lanes of the entrance ramp.

Triple Team Traffic says it appears the driver took the turn too fast, causing the load in the trailer to shift and overturn.

There’s no word on if anyone was hurt or when the tractor-trailer will be cleared and the road fully reopened.
