I-40 wreck snarls morning commute

Posted October 1, 2012 11:09 a.m. EDT

A two-car crash on westbound Interstate 40 briefly shut down the highway during the morning commute Monday.

The crash happened about 8 a.m. on I-40 at Jones Sausage Road in Garner. The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said a woman driving a Toyota hit her brakes, causing her car to swerve to the right.

When she swerved, she hit a pickup truck owned by a plumbing company. The truck lost control, and the car overturned.

The drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles. Both had minor injuries, troopers said.

All lanes were closed while crews worked to clear the wreck.
There was no information on charges.
