UPDATED: Tractor Trailer Overturns On U.S. 17

There was a big mess on Highway 17 in New Bern.

A truck hauling scrap metal turned over, closing the highway for almost three hours on Thursday.

The truck driver told police he was coming off Highway 70, making a left onto Highway 17 and his rig flipped over.

Jason Woodrow was sent to CarolinaEast Medical Center for evaluation and later charged with failure to secure load.

The 18-wheeler spilled scrap metal onto the highway with city crews cleaning up the debris. The highway reopened to traffic around 3:00 p.m.
