Crash closes I-95 near SC state line

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol released the identities of the five people killed in Tuesday afternoon's six-vehicle collision on Interstate 95. Continue on N.C. 130 North to USA 301 North/Bond Street.

Crews used cranes to lift the tanker truck and drain fuel out of it. Sealey told WRAL-TV "at least three" and maybe four people were dead.

"We are not sure of the number of fatalities at this time", said Stephanie Chavis, director Robeson County Emergency Management.




The wreck occurred near where state Department of Transportation workers were repainting the roadway lines on one of I-95's southbound lanes. The rig crossed the lanes, drove into the bordering trees and caught fire. A N.C. Department of Transportation post said the road is scheduled to reopen at 3 a.m. today.

- Nearly 12 hours after a fiery wreck that claimed five lives, Interstate 95 through North Carolina was reopened to traffic near the SC border.

Motorists headed northbound must take Exit 2 and turn left onto N.C. 130 North. Follow U.S. 301 North to get back to I-95 North. Continue for nine miles and turn left onto N.C. 130 East/East Main Street to turn onto I-95 South.
