The driver of a Wilco gas tanker is reported to be in stable condition after the tanker overturned on Bus. 85, closing the highway to traffic in both directions.
"The truck was headed southbound and ran off the road and overcorrected then overturned," said Trooper Chris Marioles on the scene. "The driver is in stable condition as far as I know."

The wreck occurred near the exit to Vickrey Chapel Road and Guilford College Road.

Marioles said the driver was most likely on his way to Moses Cone.
He said traffic will still be rerouted for awhile while the gas is taken out of the tanker and the tanker turned back over and the scene cleared. Authorities said they expect the highway to reopen sometime this afternoon.
