Major Crash on I-485

According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the initial crash happened on the inner loop between a car and a tractor-trailer. That crash forced the tractor-trailer to go left of center, through the median cables, into oncoming traffic on the outer loop, then hit a second tractor-trailer head-on. Another passenger vehicle on the outer loop then hit one of the tractor-trailers.

The driver of the first tractor-trailer was identified as Darrell Kee Buelin of Yadkinville. He was killed at the scene.

The driver of the second tractor-trailer is in critical condition. Four other people were evaluated but were not taken to the hospital.

According to Highway Patrol, speed does not appear to be a contributing circumstance, but the investigation is still ongoing. Charges are pending.

Our thoughts are with Mr. Buelin’s loved ones, friends, and family.
