This screenshot from an Arkansas Department of Transportation live traffic camera shows an overturned truck that was blocking part of I-40 on Thursday.

Interstate 40 in central Arkansas is back open after a truck overturned, snarling traffic for more than two hours.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation said shortly before 2:10 p.m. that the eastbound lanes near the Galloway exit were back open.

EARLIER:

Multiple lanes of eastbound Interstate 40 are blocked in North Little Rock after a dump truck overturned on the highway late Thursday morning, officials said.

The wreck happened before noon east of the Galloway exit.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation said shortly before 12:30 p.m. that only the right lane and shoulder were open to traffic. The Arkansas Online live traffic map continued to show a significant backup on I-40 and onto Interstate 30.

The highway agency said the driver was trapped for a time but suffered only minor injuries.

It wasn't immediately clear how the crash occurred, or when officials estimated the lanes would reopen.
