Truck Carrying Uranium Overturns On I-40

A tractor-trailer hauling about 6000 pounds of low-grade uranium overturned as it exited Interstate 95 in Johnston County Friday.

Authorities say the truck crashed onto its side after the driver lost control while exiting onto I-40.

Highway Patrol says the powdered uranium was packed in containers that weren't breached by the accident.
