CARTHAGE, N.C. (WNCN) – A North Carolina Department of Transportation snowplow overturned in Moore County as crews worked to treat roads during Friday’s snowfall.
Statewide, troopers said they had responded to dozens of wrecks earlier on Friday before the worst of the snow moved in.
One such crash involved an ambulance in Knightdale. It hit a patch of ice along Interstate-87 and ended up going down an embankment. A patient being transported went into cardiac arrest and died, officials said.
The Sandhills Sentinel reported that a road crew’s truck overturned during the last round of winter weather, as well.
