Tractor Trailer Careens off NC 181 PDF Print

One lane of NC 181 is still blocked this morning after a tractor trailer ran off of the highway and landed 300 to 400 feet off the road at about 8:45 last night.  First arriving units from Jonas Ridge and Burke Rescue found that the driver was pinned in the wreckage, but in spite of the long fall off the highway and being pinned, the state patrol says the driver suffered no life-threatening injuries.  Crews are still working to remove the wreckage this morning, and one lane of the highway in the area known as “God’s Country” is still blocked for that effort.
