Friday near Hillsborough, North Carolina could've been a tragic scenario following a semi accident that left one truck dangling over the interstate. The crash happened on I-85 when a semi that was traveling without its trailer lost control when the vehicle in front of it suddenly slowed down. Although the semi tried to slow the truck, the brakes locked due to a sudden stop. As a result, the truck swerved left, and lost control while hitting a guardrail and rolling over. Thus, the truck fell down an embankment where it came to rest.
Miraculously no one suffered major injuries in an accident, including the semi driver who only suffered minor injuries. Furthermore, it was by sheer luck that no other vehicles were involved in the wreck, although chunks of concrete fell from a bridge after it was hit. The interstate will be closed for some time while the bridge is repaired, and a temporary guardrail was put up to ensure no cars fell over the embankment.
