According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 just south of Fayetteville had to be closed for approximately 30 minutes on the morning of January 25 due to a wreck involving personal injuries.
Trooper Chris Ferrell said the crash occurred shortly before 8:30 a.m., near the 44-mile marker at the Claude Lee Road exit.
Ferrell said 40-year-old New York, New York resident H.A. Rodriguez was driving a 2000 Nissan Maxima with two passengers in the vehicle. As he attempted to change lanes, he lost control of the vehicle, which ran off the road to the right, struck a guardrail, returned to the road, spun around, and came to a stop in a position that blocked both lanes.
Rodriguez received transport to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
