FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. -- Highway 158, near Marion Pointe Drive, is closed in both directions Monday afternoon after a tractor-trailer overturned.

NC State Highway Patrol (NCSHP) and Forsyth County Emergency Services have confirmed that a tractor-trailer overturned just before 1 p.m.

Troopers set up a detour in the area and traffic is being rerouted.

Forsyth EMS said the tractor-trailer was the only vehicle involved in the accident and one person went to the hospital.

Trooper K.H. Roberts said the truck was hauling glass and part of the load spilled. Most of it's been cleaned up, she said. The interection will be completely shutdown at some point for crews to remove the semi.

The highway should completely reopen by 5:00 p.m., Trooper Roberts said.
