One person was killed early Saturday in a crash on U.S. 1 involving a tractor-trailer truck.

Pictures from the accident at U.S. 1 near Capital Boulevard showed the big-rig lying on its side.

Troopers said 41-year-old Earl Horton, of Zebulon, was driving the loaded tractor-trailer north on US 1. Sandra Hewitt, 53, of Wake Forest, was driving a Toyota passenger car west on Fish Stallings Road. Officials said Hewitt was stopped, then drove through a red light and was hit by the tractor-trailer.

Hewitt was killed in the collision.

Neither driver had any passengers in their vehicles.

The accident happened at 7:21 a.m., and US1 did not reopen until 12:30 p.m.
