WILLIAMSTON -

A stretch of Hwy 11 on the Bertie/Martin County line is closed following a tractor trailer accident Friday morning.

A commercial tractor trailer overturned at the intersection of Hwy 11 and Hwy 903 near Williamston.

The Highway Patrol tells 9 On Your Side troopers got the call at 6:15 a.m.  Martin County deputies also responded to the scene.

No word yet on whether the driver of the tractor trailer was injured or what caused the accident.

The N.C.D.O.T. says drivers will need to take a detour of U.S. 17 and Indian Woods Rd. until they clear the scene.  Hwy 11 is expected to reopen around 2:30 p.m. Friday.
