GODWIN, N.C. (WNCN) — A vehicle crash closed a direction of Interstate 95 for about two hours in Cumberland County Tuesday night, officials said.
The wreck closed northbound lanes of I-95 at mile marker 65, which is near the exit for N.C. 82, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The wreck was reported just before 7:25 p.m. and closed the northbound section at exit 65, the NCDOT said. The highway reopened around 9:25 p.m., but 5 miles of traffic back-ups continued after the reopening, the NCDOT said.
On Tuesday night, a trailer for camping was being pulled and blew a tire, then overturned, sources told CBS 17. A tractor-trailer and pickup truck then collided with the trailer.
This is the second major crash that closed a section of I-95 in just three days. A tractor-trailer hit a bridge and caught fire in nearby Harnett County on Saturday and the driver later died.
There was no word about injuries in the Tuesday night crash.
