A tractor-trailer carrying scrap metal overturned Thursday morning on the exit ramp from I-259 North onto Route 1 South in Lawrence Township, Mercer County.

The ramp was closed for more than two hours as crews worked to upright the truck and clear the debris and scrap metal from the road and grass median.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
