A car caught fire and began to burn on the side of N.C. 147 Tuesday morning.

Northbound traffic on the Durham Freeway slowed.

A Durham police watch commander said an accident occurred when a car rear-ended a truck.

No one died. But, those involved in the collision suffered minor injuries.

Drivers involved had already gotten out of their vehicles and were walking around by the time the car caught on fire, police said.
