— Raleigh police charged a woman after, they say, she caused a wreck with a tractor-trailer on Interstate 440 late Tuesday.

Police said that Rosa Marie Campos-Cabbera, 25, swerved in front a tractor-trailer as she entered I-440 East from Wake Forest Road around 10:30 p.m. Her car bounced off the tractor-trailer, hit another car and bounced back into the tractor-trailer.

Cabbera's car was pinned underneath the tractor-trailer, and crews had to extricate her, police said. She had minor injuries.

Caberra was charged with an unsafe movement violation and driving without an operator's license.

All but one lane of I-440 East was closed during rescue operations.
