DRIVER PINNED IN WRECKAGE: Fire and rescue units from Faison, Warsaw and Calypso work at the scene of an accident at the N.C. 403 exit on Interstate 40 near Faison on Monday afternoon. A tractor-trailer driven by Connie Mack Baker of Zebulon overturned as it traveled down the west-bound ramp. Baker was pinned in the truck for about 45 minutes and was airlifted to Pitt Memorial Hospital by East Care. Highway Patrol Trooper R.E. Edwards said Baker would be charged with exceeding a safe speed. There was an estimated $25,000 damage to the truck.
