The scene of a wreck on eastbound Interstate 40 in Greensboro on Saturday.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police have identified a woman who was critically injured after her car flipped over Saturday evening on eastbound Interstate 40 in Greensboro.

Clibette Michele Williams, 29, of Greensboro, was driving her 2006 Nissan Altima when the car went off the shoulder of I-40 about 5:30 p.m., according to police.

Police said a vehicle was pulling a second vehicle on a tow-dolly in the eastbound lanes near Interstate 73, when the dolly broke loose. Williams swerved to avoid the dolly, according to police.

Williams’ car went off the road to the left, struck a guardrail and flipped over twice, according to police. She was taken to Moses Cone Hospital with critical injuries.

Lanes of eastbound Interstate 40 had been closed for several hours on Saturday night, but have since reopened.

The crash is still under investigation by the Greensboro Police Crash Reconstruction Unit.
