The North Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a severe accident near Knightdale.

It happened at Knightdale Boulevard at Marks Creek Road around 3 p.m. on Friday.

The woman driving the Pontiac, identified as Abby Manning, was taken to WakeMed, where she was treated and later released.

The truck was driven by Julius Smith, state troopers said. Smith and his wife, who was in the truck with him, sustained minor injuries but did not go to the hospital.
