I couldnít stay there long to get the whole story but basically, tractor trailer driving east on Hwy 70 ran off the road for some reason overturning and sliding down an embankment. As he was sliding, the front of the tractor trailer struck the driverís side door of a car waiting to turn onto Hwy 70 out of a private drive. Both drivers walked away from what I understand and there was very little if any damage to the interior of the passenger car.
Wayside Fire, Iredell Rescue, EMS, and highway patrol were the responding units. Hwy 70 was shut down for a brief period and traffic was rerouted down Bethesda and Triplett Roads.
