Charges Pending In Crash That Closed Onslow County Highway

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.
