On January 27, a tractor-trailer driver suffered fatal personal injuries after his truck crashed on Interstate 85 South in Alamance County and traveled down an embankment, ending up in a river.


The man’s name has not yet been released by authorities.


According to reports from Greensboro’s WFMY News 2, the crash occurred at approximately 8:15 a.m. near Jimmie Kerr Road near Graham. The cab of the vehicle was submerged underwater, but crews managed to extract it.


According to what a witness told troopers, the Western Express truck, which had been transporting bottled water, stopped at a nearby Pilot gas station not long before the crash.


Fuel and bottled water spilled into the creek and State Department of Transportation officials were called in for cleanup.
