Amparo Garcia, 58, of Bailey, didn't realize traffic had come to a stop because of construction and that traffic was merging right, troopers said. Garcia's semi rear-ended a rig driven by Elijah McDaniel, 33, of Sumter, S.C., at about 4 p.m.
Both men were taken to Nash General Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.
Northbound traffic was reduced to one lane until after 7 p.m., when both lanes were opened.
Garcia faces a charge of failure to reduce speed, troopers said.
There was an unconfirmed report early on of a fuel spill resulting from the accident.
