Highway Patrol said a log truck's load tipped over Thursday morning, blocking a road.
Troopers said it happened near the Carteret-Craven County line on Lake Road around 4:20 a.m.
The back tires of the truck slipped when the driver was turning, the weight of the load caused the trailer to tip.
However, the cab remained in place and the driver was not injured.
Both lanes were closed.
The road has since re-opened.
