Deep Cut
Overturned Tractor Trailer

The call came in as an overturned tractor trailer at Deep Cut.  Deep Cut is a low spot in the road where a bridge goes over a railroad track with sweeping turns on each side.  The truck made it through the first curve, but did not make it around the second trip.  The truck was carrying spools of wire.  The driver was not injured.  Units from West Iredell Fire, Iredell Rescue, Iredell County EMS, and the NC State Patrol were on scene.
