Durham Police Investigate Crash on Interstate 40

Durham Police Investigate Crash on Interstate 40

Durham police are investigating a wrong way collision on Interstate 40 that left one man with serious injuries. The crash happened shortly before 1 a.m. today on Interstate 40 West near Interstate 540.

A white Toyota RAV4 driven by Qianyu Hang, 25, of Raleigh was going east in the westbound lanes when the vehicle collided with a westbound FedEx 2018 Volvo 18-wheeler driven by Tyrone Hines, 68, of Pinetops. Hines saw the wrong way driver coming toward him and took evasive action by swerving to the right, which caused the impact to be on the left side of the 18-wheeler’s tractor, according to investigators.

Hang was taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Hines was not injured.

There had been 911 calls about the wrong way driver before the collision occurred, according to investigators. No charges have been filed, but the crash remains under investigation.

Interstate 40 West, with the exception of one lane, was shut down for four hours while the scene was processed and debris was cleared from the roadway.
