HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- A jackknifed tractor-trailer caused a headache for drivers in Huntersville on Wednesday afternoon.

The ramp leading from Gilead Road on to Interstate 77 southbound was blocked after the 18 wheeler wrecked around 12:45 p.m.

Both southband lanes were congested until the scene was cleared around 2 p.m.

Officials say a car in front of the tractor-trailer slowed down to enter an on ramp, prompting the driver to slam on his brakes causing the rig to jackknife.

No one was injured, and no charges will be filed.
