HICKORY, N.C. -  An 18-wheeler hauling hundreds of bottles of wine overturned Thursday afternoon on Interstate 40 near Hickory.

Eyewitness News captured raw video from the scene of the crash near the exit ramp onto southbound Highway 321.

Police said the driver took the curve too fast, causing the 18-wheeler to flip. Dozens of bottles of wine spilled out of the big rig after part of the roof tore open.

The driver was rushed to the hospital and police said it could take a few hours to clean up the mess.
