A stretch of U.S. 1 between Pennsylvania Avenue and Midland Road in Southern Pines, North Carolina was temporarily closed on March 16 after an accident involving a motorcycle and a log truck. According to reports from local officials, the log truck had been heading north on the highway when it overturned in the median. This led to logs being spilled onto the other side of the road and hitting the motorcycle in the southbound lanes.
Two people were transported via helicopter to area hospitals to be treated for injuries, and authorities continued to investigate exactly what happened.

When rollovers occur, they can be extremely dangerous both for the truck driver and for other motorists on the road. In this particular incident, it became an even more dangerous situation because of the type of cargo the vehicle was carrying and the fact that logs were able to roll into other lanes.
