Onslow County Highway Now Open After Accident

All lanes of an Onslow County highway are open again after an accident Tuesday morning that spilled diesel fuel.

The crash took place on Highway 258, south of Richlands.

Emergency Management officials say two westbound lanes of Highway 258 were closed for several hours as crews cleaned up a tractor trailer vs. car crash.

The crash happened on Highway 258 at Gregory Forks Rd. just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. The driver of the car had minor injuries, officials say, while the truck driver was not hurt.

Emergency management says the driver of the car fell asleep at the wheel and his vehicle struck the tractor trailer.
