The accident occurred at around 2:45 a.m. on an eastbound lane of I-540 between Creedmoor and Six Forks roads.

Authorities had to remove both drivers from the vehicles. Both were taken to the hospital. Troopers said alcohol was a factor in the accident.

Crews closed a portion of the roadway to clear the scene of the accident, but it has since reopened to traffic.
