According to local officials, the accident happened at 4:10 p.m. on US-52 around the area of Pilot Mountain State Park. Police confirmed that a race car was being hauled on a car hauler.

The roadway was completely blocked in the area of the accident for an extended period of time due to the accident’s severity. Police urged those in the area to use Kay Street as an alternate route until the scene was fully cleared.
