Northbound N.C. 55 has reopened at Cornwallis Road after authorities cleared an earlier traffic accident.

Two people in the truck were ejected and suffered serious injuries, police said. No other details about the accident were released.

The accident took place about 2:30 p.m. The northbound lanes of N.C. 55 remained closed for more than two hours.
