The accident occurred at around 9:22 p.m. local time on Capital Boulevard near the Starmount Shopping Center. Thomas Kincaid, 54, drove north on Capital when another vehicle pulled out from the shopping center, crashing into his car.
Although the collision did not have much force, it was enough to push Kincaid’s vehicle into a tractor-trailer driving next to him, according to The News&Observer. His vehicle caught under the axles of the trailer where he was stuck for more than 300 feet before the truck driver could stop.
The News&Observer reports that Kincaid suffered from serious injuries and received treatment at WakeMed hospital. Officials say he is expected to survive.
Police say the driver of the second car, 19-year-old Hcen Siu Rcom, failed to yield when he wrecked into Kincaid. However, police did not issue a citation on Monday night. The investigation into the injury wreck is ongoing, according to The News&Observer.
