On Monday morning, there was a four-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer on I-26 in Asheville. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened in the eastbound lanes, between Exits 33 and 37. Very few details about this crash have been released, but we do know that three vehicles and a semi truck were involved, and the wreck resulted in a fiery blaze. Initial reports indicate that a Volkswagen Jetta hit a Chevy Silverado, and the Silverado hit a semi truck. The Silverado left the roadway, overturned and caught fire. Additionally, the Jetta struck another vehicle during the collision.
