[Trailer, pickup hit on NC 540]

Terry Allan North, 54, was northbound with his son in a white Nissan pickup towing a white trailer on July 28 when the trailer came loose, according to the State Highway Patrol. Troopers said the men stopped their truck in the middle lane of N.C. 540 and got out to try to retrieve the trailer.

North was between the trailer and the truck when Lawrence's Jeep came up from behind and was unable to stop, slamming into the trailer, according to the Highway Patrol.

North was between the trailer and the truck when Lawrence's Jeep came up from behind and was unable to stop, slamming into the trailer, according to the Highway Patrol.

Trey North, 21, was taken to Duke University Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Lawrence suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital by his daughter, who was a passenger in his Jeep.




Why did the trailer come loose  in the first place? 

Our point is if the trailer never came loose in the first place then the trailer would not be sitting on a highway just sitting in the middle lane.
