A serious accident on I-95 in Wilson County on Saturday morning has resulted in several serious injuries.
The accident apparently happened when a tractor-trailer hit a van in the emergency lane in the southbound direction. The tractor-trailer hit the van in the rear. One person was critically injured and two other people also suffered injuries.
This is obviously a very serious accident. A tractor-trailer frequently weighs up to 80,000 pounds and anytime it strikes another vehicle, the impact is very significant. Tractor-trailer cases are among the most serious accidents on the roadways of North Carolina and require immediate attention. In most cases, a lawyer will quickly send an accident engineer to investigate the scene and gather critical evidence.
