Troopers say Ricky Hackney was driving a Fed Ex tractor-trailer when he rear-ended another tractor-trailer early Wednesday morning. Hackney's tractor trailer overturned, blocking both lanes of the roadway.

Hackney was accused of reckless driving.

Ion Semens, the other driver, is charged with operating a truck with faulty equipment.

The crash shut down the interstate near Hillsborough for nearly nine hours.
