Oak Ridge, NC --  A tractor trailer flipped over and is blocking Highway 68 near the Old Guilford Mill in the Oak Ridge area.

NC Highway Patrol's Sgt. Webb said the crash happened around 2:05 p.m, after a PT Cruiser stopped on Highway 68 North to make a left turn. Webb said the PT Cruiser was hit from behind by a semi after the driver failed to reduce his speed.

The impact sent the car and the semi down an embankment. The two people in the car were transported to Moses Cone for treatment. Webb said their injuries appear to be minor. The semi driver was not injured.

After being closed for hours, highway patrol said the area is now open to traffic.
