A spokesperson for the N.C. Highway Patrol said the trooper’s car was struck after he responded to an earlier accident due to the winter weather and road conditions. The trooper’s vehicle was on the shoulder of the highway when the driver of a tractor trailer lost control, struck the patrol car, and then flipped on its side.
Both the trooper and the driver of the rig were taken to High Point Regional Hospital.
