STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Authorities worked for hours to clear the scene of an overturned logging truck just outside of Statesville on Monday.

Minutes before noon, the call came in to report the overturned logging truck on the 1000 block of Old Mocksville Road, about four miles outside of Statesville.

Old Mocksville Road remains closed, and North Carolina Highway Patrol says they expect the roadway to remain closed into the early evening hours.

The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No other vehicles were involved.

It's not yet clear what caused the truck to overturn. NCHP is investigating.
