Michael Anthony Peters, H. McRoy Skipper Jr, and Jo Skipper killed in multi-vehicle crashes on Interstate 40 in Johnston County, North Carolina
The driver of the truck carrying lumber failed to reduce speed for stopped traffic, Baker said, striking several vehicles causing a chain-reaction of multiple vehicle crashes.
One of the victims was identified Thursday as Michael Anthony Peters, 64, of Youngsville. The names of the other two victims haven't been released, pending notification of family.
Futch said that, while dozens of people stood in the median videotaping the scene, he and several other Good Samaritans tried to save as many people as he could.
