5 dead, 3 others seriously injured in crash along NC interstate

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol says one vehicle was traveling on the outer lanes of I-485 when the driver, who was possibly speeding, collided with a box truck. The box truck then lost control and went through the median and median wire barrier onto the inner loop, traveling towards oncoming traffic.

The chain of crashes started with a driver speeding at over 100 mph whose vehicle hit a box truck, which veered into oncoming traffic on the interstate and struck an SUV carrying the four family members, Pierce said.
