VIDEO: A person died after being hit by a car on Monday evening.
Greensboro police responded to Interstate 40 East just past the Sandy Ridge Road exit around 8:30 p.m. when they were told about a crash. According to police, a 2010 Acura TSX left the road and hit a guardrail, overturning and catching fire.
At least half a dozen people called 911.
“We just saw something erupt in flames,” said a 911 caller. “It hit…a power pole and just exploded.”
The driver was able to get out of the car but was hit by another car and died at the scene.
“We saw the burning car, and then he was crossing the road, and then the other car just like flew right past him, and he got thrown above the car,” said another 911 caller.
Esther Ngo and her family passed the scene. “It just kind of took my breath away,” Ngo said.
