Winston-Salem, NC—A violent traffic crash along westbound Interstate 40 landed a North Carolina State Highway Patrol trooper in the hospital with leg and hip injuries. The accident occurred around 8:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 17, 2010 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, as reported by WXII12.

According to NCSHP officials, Trooper Brett Daniels responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on I-40 at West Clemmonsville Road and was standing near his patrol car when a second crash occurred at the same location.

Reports indicated an unidentified woman was behind the wheel of a Ford Explorer when the SUV struck a patch of ice in the left lane of I-40.

Her sport utility vehicle subsequently careened across the roadway and smashed into Daniels’ patrol car. The patrol vehicle then spun around, hitting Daniels. The impact caused the Highway Patrol trooper to suffer hip and leg injuries.

Emergency medical services (EMS) crews were dispatched to the scene to transport Daniels to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center to be treated by doctors and nurses.

The injured North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper’s condition was not immediately known.

The SUV driver, who managed to escape injury in the wreck, faces unspecified charges in connection with the Winston-Salem crash.
