A 20-year-old Dunn woman was driving south on I-95 past Four Oaks Tuesday night around 11:30 when she hit the median cables and ended up in the northbound lane just as two tractor-trailers were approaching.
One of the trucks crashed into a car that had stopped without its headlights on. The car flipped back onto the median, and the tractor-trailer, which went out of control, flew up an embankment into trees.
The woman was trapped in her car until Four Oaks firefighters arrived and were able to extricate her. She was taken to Wake Med with serious injuries.
The truck driver was not injured. According to him, he was transporting a load of flowers from Florida to Pennsylvania at the time of the accident.
One lane of I-95 was closed for several hours after the crash.
The NC State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
