The westbound lanes of High House Road from Cary Parkway to Maury O’Dell Place were closed during the morning commute Monday because of a crash that sent one person to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The crash happened before 6 a.m. when one car hit a tree, town officials said.
The driver was taken to Duke University Hospital in Durham, they said.
The road has reopened by 10:30 a.m. after debris was cleared and crash-reconstruction police officers had gathered information.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation, and the driver’s identity was not available.
