A wreck Monday evening shut down U.S. 264 eastbound nearly a mile past the Hodge Road exit for about a half hour, the N.C. Highway Patrol said.

Two people were injured in the wreck, which happened when a car traveling westbound lost control, went over the median and into the eastbound lane, hitting a pickup truck and tractor-trailer.

Two people were transported with non-life-threatening injuries to WakeMed.

The driver of the car that lost control will be charged with driving left of center and exceeding a safe speed. That person's name has not been released.
