I-40/Stamey Farm Rd
Bus vs. Truck and Small Trailer
The first call came in as a vehicle overturned on the interstate. While rescue workers were on this call, a send call came in as a passenger bus had struck a tractor trailer and the driver was pinned in the vehicle. When the bus crested a hill on the interstate, the traffic was stopped and the bus first struck a small trailer being pulled behind a pickup and then hit a tractor trailer in the rear. The drivers were not injured but the bus sustained some pretty serious damage. The bus was in transit to a golf tournament and was not occupied. The driver was entrapped for a short time, but came through the windshield to get out. A second bus was brought down and the driver continued his trip. Monticello Fire, West Iredell Fire, Iredell County Rescue, Iredell County EMS, and NC State Patrol were dispatched.
I have also included some photos of the wrecker as well.
