HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A wreck is blocking traffic northbound on Memorial Parkway just near University Drive.  A semi-truck turned on its side on the northbound access road.

The scene is just in front of the Huntsville/Madison County Metro Jail.  Traffic is blocked for drivers trying to use the North Parkway access road, but the main part of North Parkway is moving, just slowly in this area.

Two fire trucks are on the scene, as well as three police cars and a tow truck.  The driver was not injured.

The truck was hauling mulch.  The driver said he was driving off the I-565 ramp to head northbound on Memorial Parkway and the truck was top heavy, and tipped.  No other vehicles were involved.
