I-85 near Hillsborough reopens after tractor-trailer crash

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- The left lane of I-85 near NC-86 in Orange County was closed after a tractor-trailer crashed into another vehicle Saturday afternoon, NCDOT said.

Officials said a person who was driving a Chevy Tahoe had a medical condition around 1 p.m., which caused them to lose control of the vehicle. A tractor trailer subsequently hit the Tahoe from behind.

One adult and three children from the Tahoe were transported to Duke with non-life-threaten injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer was treated at the scene.
