I77 Single Vehicle Accident

A single vehicle accident involving a small pickup that was against the guard rail.  Some initial  reports said the driver may have had a seizure.  Upon arrival, the vehicle had 2 females who were not seriously injured, but the truck appears to have struck a tractor trailer due to the rubber on the driver's side and the right side had hit the guard rail.  The patient was transported to be checked out.  Units from Troutman Fire/Rescue, Shepherds Fire Dept, Mooresville Rescue, Iredell County EMS and State Patrol were dispatched.
