Greensboro, NC -- All lanes of I-85 Business in both directions near Greensboro have reopened after a Wilco tanker overturned in the center median. 

The tanker was carrying 7,500 gallons of diesel fuel, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The DOT said the accident happened shortly before 11 am Wednesday at mile-marker 118 at Vickery Chapel Road.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol said Richard Szajlai, 48-years-old from Winston-Salem, was driving the truck on I-85 Business South when he went off the road on the left. Szajlai over-corrected and flipped the truck. 

Szajlai was taken to an area hospital for minor injuries. He was charged with Failure to Maintain Lane.
