A cement-mixer truck rolled onto its side on westbound Interstate 540 just east of Raleigh late Friday morning, blocking multiple lanes of traffic for a time.

There were no reports of injuries, and firefighters were trying to clear debris so some traffic lanes could be reopened.

"There are no injuries, just a mess," a commander on the scene told Wake County fire dispatch.

The accident happened about 11:40 a.m. near the Knightdale Boulevard interchange.
