Original post:

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says a tractor trailer, carrying members of a NASCAR team, traveled off I-40 Wednesday evening – leaving two injured.

Troopers say the tractor trailer was traveling westbound on I-40 near mile marker 93 in McDowell County when it traveled off the right side of the roadway and crashed through the guardrail on the shoulder.

It then went down an embankment and overturned before coming to a stop in a wooded area.
