A tractor trailer carrying industrial latex overturned shutting down part of Highway 25 in Henderson County.
The truck wrecked on the Hwy. 25 Connector just before the I-26 Bridge around 5:30 this morning. The crash shutdown the Northbound lanes as well as the lanes coming off I-26 to get onto Hwy. 25 South. Right now one Northbound lane is back open.
The truck did not spill its load, but the crash did cause some of the diesel fuel to leak. Emergency crews have the fuel leak contained. They are waiting for another tanker to arrive to off load the latex.
Emergency crews took the driver to Pardee Hospital. There is no word on his condition.
NC Highway Patrol says it is going to be awhile before they have the wreck cleared and reopen all of the lanes.
