    This article is incorrect on a couple of points - 1st - as one comment already pointed out - traffic wasn't SLOWED - it was at a stand still for over an hour. 2nd - how in the world can you report there were no injuries - I was 3 cars behind the truck when it happened - he left the road at about 70 MPH knocked down several trees before hitting a tree that wouldn't give. NUMEROUS people saw the severity of the crash and immediately stopped and ran to his aid. Having seen it first hand you cannot possibly report there were no injuries.

    I don't use interstates to go anywhere. I try to use FAST roadways.

    I also crawled through this accident yesterday; at noon traffic completely stopped for 2 hours. I was roughly 4 miles from the accident.

    We were in this traffic yesterday. We were going 20-30mph depending in the stretch you were on and was backed up for more than 20 miles. On top of that there were a few accidents along the way bc people were in a hurry and not paying attention. I hope the driver is ok, the cab of the truck was wrapped around a tree and didn't even look like a cab if a truck. Praying for the driver!

    Traffic was slow and at a stand still at 2:30 pm and also close to 7 pm as well. Plus, how did the driver escape? The truck went through the guardrails and then hit some trees.

    I sat in traffic for 90+ minutes before the traffic even started moving! WRAL needs to tweak the title of this article; traffic was not slowed down, it was at a stand still.
