GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Police said an 18-wheeler carrying glue overturned on the on-ramp to Interstate 385 southbound from Pleasantburg Drive Monday afternoon.

Greenville police said the accident happened about noon and hazmat was called in to assist in the cleanup of the glue.

Officers said there was nothing to be concerned about except for traffic delays. Officers will have the ramp closed through rush hour.

Authorities said the truck was driving down Pleasantburg trying to take the southbound ramp onto I-385, and the cargo inside shifted because it was loaded improperly.

Officials said the non-toxic glue, similar to Elmer's, leaked out.
