WAYNE COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - A highway is reopened Wednesday after a propane truck flipped over in Wayne County.

The Highway Patrol says NC-111 near Seven Springs and Vann Smith Road in Wayne County was closed in both directions for several hours.

Troopers say Norman Plourde was driving a Hilco Transportation truck when he turned too short and the trailer wheels dropped off in a ditch, causing the truck to flip over and block the highway.

Officials say no one was hurt and no charges will be filed.
