Sergeant Keller with the Highway Patrol says two tractor trailers side-swiped. One lost control and jackknifed into the embankment. The other kept going, apparently not knowing what happened.

Diesel fuel was spilled – there were only minor injuries.

At one point, traffic was routed off I forty in Mocksville to alleviate congestion.
