OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

The Opelika Police Department is asking motorists to avoid Interstate 85 between mile markers 64 and 66 after a crash just north of Exit 64 Monday afternoon involving an 18-wheeler.

One northbound lane is closed and one southbound lane is closed in this area. If you can't avoid this area, please slow down and proceed with caution.

According to authorities, a commercial vehicle carrying automobile parts to the KIA plant was sideswiped by a private vehicle.

The 18-wheeler overturned, but no injuries were reported.

Police say cleanup of the scene is being delayed because the contents of the wrecked truck are having to be loaded into another semi-truck.
