INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — A tractor-trailer rolled over on 291 Highway early Wednesday and caused one lane to close.

Police said the second trailer of a FedEx truck rolled over and blocked the left lane of southbound 291 Highway near E. 39th St. The rollover caused police to direct traffic into one lane.

The cab did not appear to be damaged. Nothing from the trailer spilled out onto the highway and a tow truck was on the scene working to clear the overturned trailer.

No injuries have been reported.

Police did not say if rain contributed to the accident.
