DWI Suspect Strikes Log Truck, Other Vehicles

DUDLEY – Three cars and a log truck were involved in an early morning crash on Old Mount Olive Highway near Dudley in Wayne County on Monday.

According to the State Highway Patrol, the driver of a maroon pickup truck was charged with DWI and driving left of center after he first collided the 18-wheeler, then other cars behind it. A fourth vehicle ran over the spilled load of logs.

The logs were on their way from Plymouth, NC to the Dudley plywood plant. The log truck driver said, “I saw him coming in my lane and thought he was going to get over, but he never did.”

Miraculously, there were no injuries to anyone involved.
