Raleigh, N.C. — Authorities said all lanes were open on the inner Beltline near Western Boulevard around 11 a.m. Friday after they cleared the scene of a one-vehicle crash several hours earlier.
Vernon Davis, 27, was traveling in the right lane of Interstate 440 when his vehicle went off the road. He over-corrected and lost control of the vehicle, according to the wreck report. The vehicle then overturned several times.
Davis was not wearing his seat-belt and was ejected from the vehicle, police said.
Emergency crews took Davis to WakeMed. He was in critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
