— Two people were injured when their car flipped several times on Interstate 40 near U.S. 15-501 Sunday afternoon.

The vehicle, a Honda Civic, was traveling eastbound when another car pulled out in front of it abruptly, Durham police said. The Civic swerved and then rolled multiple times.

Two victims were taken to UNC Hospital, one with severe injuries and one with minor injuries.

Two out of three lanes of traffic were closed while police worked to clear the scene, causing heavy delays for drivers in the area. All lanes reopened around 5:30 p.m.

No other information was released.
