A rainy-morning wreck on the Durham Freeway near Duke University Hospital caused problems Thursday, but it happened after much of the morning commute had ended.

The crash on the southbound side of the road, N.C. 147, closed two of the four lanes between U.S. 15-501 and Hillandale Road, where the freeway begins to narrow to two lanes.

The state Department of Transportation said the accident happened about 9 a.m.

There was no report on whether anyone was injured.
