Cary, N.C. — Three vehicles and a tractor-trailer were involved in a wreck Tuesday morning on Interstate 40 East between Aviation Parkway and Harrison Avenue near Cary, state Highway Patrol officials said.
According to investigators, a pickup truck was attempting to change lanes at about 7:30 a.m. when it caused another pickup truck to lose control and run into the tractor-trailer. A third vehicle was also involved, and the wreck caused the tractor-trailer to overturn.
No injuries were reported in the wreck, but officials said a 17-year-old driving the pickup truck that caused the accident would be charged with an improper lane change.
The right two lanes of I-40 East were closed for more than two hours following the wreck. The highway reopened at about 10 a.m.
