An I-40 Westbound tractor trailer accident near the Davie-Iredell line affected traffic for nearly six hours yesterday [Monday] afternoon.
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.
