Police said the impact caused the Camry to tip over to the right and roll over several times. The driver of the Mack Granite truck was not injured, police said.
WRAL News spoke to a witness named David who said the car was traveling at least 90 mph before the crash. “I saw debris on the van in front of me, so I knew it was bad,” David said. “I kept turning left, into the leftmost lane, to get around everybody,” said David, who was near the scene of the crash at Exit 7 off Glenwood Avenue. “I saw a white car going upside down,” David said. “I saw a gentleman standing nearby. I can’t tell you if he was the driver.” At 12:30 p.m., the Sky 5 flew over the crash site, the Camry overturned, and multiple rescuers were at the scene.
