A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
The Highway Patrol says heavy rain played a factor in an afternoon crash where a car ended up on its top in Pitt County.
The single-vehicle accident happened around 1:45 p.m. on the U.S. 264 Bypass, at the Highway 43 exit.
Troopers say it is likely the 4-door Honda hydroplaned, causing it to flip over, and land on its top.
The driver of the car was taken to Vidant Medical Center. There is no word yet on their condition.
