Authorities closed Aviation Parkway just south of Interstate 40 late Thursday morning because of an accident in which a truck overturned.

The state Department of Transportation estimated that it would be closed until 1:30 p.m. The accident happened just after 11:30 a.m. between Gateway Centre Boulevard and Dominion Drive.

There were no reports of serious injuries, but firefighters indicated some material had spilled from the truck and would need to be cleaned up before the road could reopen.
