GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Highway Patrol says an accident involving a tractor-trailer and two other vehicles caused a lot of backup at the I-40/I-85 split in Whitsett on Monday morning. 

Troopers responded to the crash around 8:07 a.m. near Rock Creek Dairy Road in Guilford County. 

Troopers say Angela Anderson lost control of her car, traveled off the roadway to the right, and hit a guardrail. Two other drivers in a car and a semi tried to avoid hitting her and ended up crashing into trees off the highway. 

Highway Patrol says the tractor-trailer driver was taken to Moses Cone Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Anderson was charged with exceeding a safe speed for the conditions.
