Wake County, N.C. — A two-year-old dark yellow Labrador Retriever named Hank was missing after a two-car wreck on Interstate 40 near Airport Boulevard in Morrisville Friday. The dog was picked up after the accident and has been located at the Wake County Animal Shelter.
Sarah Lynn Blue, 34, was traveling westbound at a high speed on I-40 and collided with 34-year-old Lyndsay Brooke Guisce Smith around 6:30 p.m.
Both vehicles spun to the right, and Blue hit a tree.
Blue was pulled out of her car by witnesses, who performed CPR at the scene. She was transported to Duke University Hospital with serious injuries.
Smith was transported to WakeMed in Cary with minor injuries. Blue was traveling with two dogs. One of the dogs died in the wreck, and the other ran away from the scene.
Alcohol and speed were determined factors in the wreck, and charges are pending against Blue.
Two westbound lanes of I-40 were temporarily closed on Friday evening.
