CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Three people were injured in an accident involving two tractor-trailers on Interstate 85 Thursday morning.
Emergency crews said a car collided with two tractor-trailers on I-85 south near Freedom Drive. The accident happened around 7 a.m.
The driver of a Nissan Altima tried to get off of I-85 and did not see the tractor-trailer in the next lane. The car side swiped the one tractor-trailer and then collided with the second truck, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
Crews had to rescue one person that was pinned in their vehicle. The three victims suffered minor injuries during the wreck. One of the tractor-trailers also leaked fuel along I-85.
Troopers charged the driver in the Nissan with an unsafe movement violation.
