In Iredell County, a passenger in a southbound vehicle spotted the wheels of a pickup truck Thursday evening and that led to the discovery of a crash that killed one person.
One person was inside the overturned truck but evidence indicates the crash did not happen Thursday according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
Emergency crews were called to the area of the 57 mile maker on Interstate 77 Thursday evening . A Ford Ranger pickup truck was found in the South Yadkin River. Troopers are still attempting to confirm the identity of the person killed in the crash. Investigators think the wreck happened around mid-July.
The investigation closed the northbound lanes of I-77 from Turnersburg Highway to Tomlin Mill Road for about three hours.
