— Northbound lanes of Interstate 95 just east of Fayetteville were closed for hours Wednesday afternoon after a UPS truck caught fire near the interchange with N.C. Highway 24.

The truck was pulled onto the shoulder and engulfed in flames.

For a short while, N.C. 24 was closed where it crosses I-95.

State troopers said the UPS truck collided with a white pickup truck in the northbound lanes. Both drivers were taken to a hospital, troopers said, although they did not offer details on their identities or their injuries.

Northbound lanes were closed just before 3:30 p.m. and reopened just past 8 p.m.
