The truck driver, an Apex man, was delivering a replacement cab to a transport truck that had broken down near the Jones Sausage Road interchange with I-40. As he was trying to cross the highway, the driver of a Mitsubishi struck him.

At the end of the day, the truck driver was still listed in critical condition.

No charges were filed against the driver of the Mitsubishi.
