CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C. -- The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is investigating two crashes that closed the southbound lanes of I-95 Saturday evening.

According to officials, a car crashed and went down an embankment in the median of the interstate just before 5 p.m. Hours later, two tow trucks were attempting to move the crashed vehicle when a pick up truck crashed into one of the tow trucks. That pickup continued on, hitting the second tow truck too before coming to a stop.

The driver of the pick up truck was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

In an effort to avoid the crash, the driver of a tractor trailer ran off the road.

Besides the driver of the pickup truck, no other serious injuries have been reported. Investigators have not determined if the rain played a factor in any of the crashes.
