Police closed a ramp from Interstate 495 and U.S. 264 onto eastbound Interstate 440 on the east side of Raleigh on Thursday after a tractor-trailer rolled over there, they said.

No serious injuries were reported by police and fire units on the scene.

Traffic was expected to be tied up in the area until a large wrecker could arrive and right the overturned rig.
