An overturned semi in Davidson County had traffic stalled for several hours on Briley Parkway.

The incident happened near Urbandale Avenue around 9:10 a.m. Saturday.

The wreck allegedly happened when the semi lost control while carrying a load of commercial-sized cement storm drains.

The crash initially shutdown both sides of Briley Parkway in that area.

There was no word released on any possible injuries involved.

Authorities said there was a small gas leak, but they added it was not a hazard.

Saturday afternoon, authorities said only the left lane was still blocked to northbound drivers. Southbound traffic was no longer affected.

Crews said the roadway was cleared by 4:30 p.m.
