11 Vehicle Pile-Up Tangles I-95 Traffic

Posted March 14, 1997

— Traffic on Interstate-95 in Johnston County finally began moving again late Friday afternoon after an accident involving 11 vehicles.

The pile-up involved eight cars and three tractor-trailers just south of Smithfield. Paramedics rushed at least four injured people to the hospital.

Troopers say the wreck was apparently a chain-reaction started with a risky move on the part of one driver. They have not said yet which, if any, drivers will be charged.
