UPDATE (11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 14): The fast lane on I-77 southbound has reopened.

The driver of the overturned truck was able to get out of the truck before crews arrived, and they were transported to the hospital. There is no word yet on their condition.

The truck was full of cardboard, so it took a long time to put out the blaze.
