Trooper: Vehicle flipped, caught fire in fatal I-40 wreck

Posted March 23, 2016

A person died early Wednesday morning in a single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 40 in Johnston County after a car flipped and caught fire, officials said.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said a single vehicle traveling east on I-40 lost control around 3:30 a.m. and hit the guard rail near mile marker 328 before rolling over into the embankment. Troopers said the car caught fire and was totally engulfed.

Troopers have not been able to identify the person killed in the wreck.

    Are they reporters? Are they even a legit news organization? They seem like they are more advocates for the "Tranny" movement with all the coverage of the Charlotte bathroom Bull***. Do they even care about a death on the Interstate?

    This headline was a little misleading. I thought a trooper's vehicle had caught fire. Grammar skills go a long way, especially if you are a reporter. :)
