PARKTON, N.C. (WNCN) – A traffic collision on I-95 near Parkton forced authorities to set up a detour Thursday.

Officials said Friday that no one was seriously injured in the wreck.

Jessica Reid witnessed the collision and said her heart dropped at the sight of it.

“It was an 18 wheeler, ran up on the concrete median on the opposite side of the road. The motor of the transfer truck was sitting in the road and there was a white, I’m not familiar with cars but it was an older white sedan that was completely demolished,” Reid said.

She said traffic was at a standstill and people were outside their vehicles.
