Recently a car accident in Pender County, NC had emergency workers scrambling. The accident shut down part of I-40 in North Carolina. The incident involved a car and a truck. The impact was so great that the car ended up flipping upside down. Police had to cut the people out of the overturned car. The occupants of both vehicles sustained serious injuries, so serious that a helicopter was called to help transport the victims.
