Fatal accident shuts down Durham Freeway
A wrong-way driver apparently caused a fatal collision that closed northbound lanes of the Durham Freeway on Tuesday night.
One person died and three others were injured just before 9 p.m. Durham police reported that a vehicle going south in the northbound lanes struck another vehicle.
Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said that investigators were not yet releasing any information about whether the person who died was the one driving in the wrong direction.
The injured were taken to a local hospital, but their conditions were not released late Tuesday.
