Woman to face charges after 3-vehicle crash on I-85 in Guilford County
GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. —Troopers say charges are pending against a woman after a three-vehicle wreck shut down part of Interstate 85 south/I-40 west Tuesday morning.
Highway Patrol responded to the scene shortly before 8:30 a.m. near Exit 138 by the Alamance County-Guilford County line.
Bennie Jackson III, 54, of Greensboro, was driving a Hyundai passenger car when she tried to merge onto the interstate from a rest area.
Troopers believe Jackson sideswiped a tractor-trailer parking alongside the on-ramp.
The car then went into the road and hit a 59-year-old woman driving a Jeep SUV.
The woman driving the jeep was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
All travel lanes were reopened by 10 a.m.
