Sadly, a woman was killed in Charlotte on Tuesday morning around  11:10 a.m. when her  car stalled out, only to be  struck by a passing tractor-trailer that was headed northbound on Interstate 85.

According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, the tractor-trailor first collided with the median, spun out of control, and then struck the victim’s vehicle, killing the victim upon impact.

The tractor-trailer then caught fire until Charlotte firefighters, traveling from the southbound direction of I-85, could reach the scene of the crash.
