MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department says all lanes of Interstate 85 at the interchange in Montgomery are re-opened to traffic following an 18-wheeler crash earlier in the evening.

The tractor-trailor, carrying a load of sheet rock, snarled weekend traffic getting onto the interchange's southbound lanes.

No cause was given for the 18-wheeler's overturning, but crews worked to clear the roadway.

The wreck remains under investigation.
