— One person was hurt in an accident in Wake County Saturday morning.

A family that was moving from the Triangle to Michigan ran into some trouble on Highway 98. Police say the driver lost control when the trailer that was hitched to the back of the truck started to swerve.

The truck crossed the center line and before the driver could make it back into the correct lane, an oncoming truck hit the trailer. 55-year-old John Allen is listed in critical condition at Wake Med.
