Tractor trailer crash closes part of I-40 in Davie Co.

DAVIE COUNTY, N.C. — A wreck involving a tractor trailer and car has closed a portion of I-40 in Davie County Monday morning.

The accident happened around 12:45 a.m.

A tractor-trailer driven by Michael Jones, of Durham, reportedly rear ended a Chevrolet Aveo driven by Patricia Peebles, of Winston-Salem, who was slowing to take an exit.

Officials say the crash happened on I-40 eastbound at the N.C. 801 exit in Mocksville.

Peebles and a passenger were transported to an area hospital where they were treated and released.

Jones has been cited with reckless driving.

The road was reopened around 9 a.m., but there were periodic closings to allow heavy duty wreckers to pull the 18-wheeler out of the woods and off the road.
