Police later determined that both trucks were exiting on the eastbound off ramp. One of them was making a left turn when it was hit by the other tractor trailer, which appeared to be going straight.

The bridge the trucks were travelling on was damaged and will be closed until further notice.

Charges are pending in this crash, but police did not specify what charges have been laid or who is facing the charges.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Durham police at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5267 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
