Dozens caught in North Carolina pile-up

Burlington, NC (WRAL) A woman who was driving one of the 134 vehicles involved in a series of wrecks on Interstate 40 Sunday evening described the event as something out of a movie.

The first incident, which involved about 25 vehicles, happened on eastbound I-40 in Alamance County, at about 3:30 p.m.

As emergency crews worked to clear eastbound lanes, drivers headed west began to reduce speed, leading to several other collisions over a four-mile portion of I-40 West, troopers said.

"All four lanes were running into the back of cars," said driver Mary Holmes, who was driving from South Carolina to Raleigh. "It was like something you see out of a movie."
