CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — A driver is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries following a four-car crash in Cary on Tuesday afternoon, officials tell CBS 17.

Authorities say around 4 p.m., a person driving a Honda was going at a high rate of speed and side-swiped another car. The driver was then ejected from the vehicle, suffering life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The driver was going so fast that the car — despite now not have a driver — veered onto Morrisville Parkway and hit two other vehicles, according to Carrie Roman, Cary’s Public Information Officer.

The people in the other three vehicles were not injured but their vehicles needed to be towed from the scene.

One lane of Morrisville Parkway was closed until about 8:30 p.m.

As of late Tuesday night, no charges had been filed in the wreck.
