Two drivers were sent to the hospital after their trucks collided this morning.
State troopers say a pickup truck crossed the center line and hit an empty 18-wheeler dump truck.
The big rig ended up going off the right side of the highway, over-corrected and then hit a ditch.
The accident happened around 8:15 a.m. on Highway 111 in Onslow County, near Union Church Road.
The highway was shut down for a while because of leaking diesel fuel.
The Highway Patrol says charges are pending in the accident.
