About Interstate 495
I-495 was a segment of US 64 until the Federal Highway Administration decided in December 2013 that it meets interstate highway standards. It is now considered concurrent with US 64.
The interstate starts at I-440 in Raleigh and will end at I-95 in Rocky Mount. The official I-495 is currently only until Knightdale, but parts of the highway in Wendell are already signed Future I-495. The rest—including sections in Zebulon, Nashville, and Rocky Mount—is slated for an official interstate upgrade.
Interstate 495 Accidents
I-495 may be a new name, but this road has physically existed as US 64 since the 1930s. Even after road improvements have been made, motor vehicle accidents have occurred and continue to occur here. Some of the more recent ones include a fatal truck crash and an injurious wreck involving 15 motorcycles.
As with any other highway, there are numerous factors that can cause road accidents on I-495. Speeding, distracted driving, defective vehicle parts, and poor road conditions are only some of the most common. In addition, highway accidents often cause devastating injuries such as brain or spine damage, life-threatening concussions, and severe fractures.
In many cases, auto accidents also lead to deaths. These damages, further accompanied by the emotional and financial suffering, should prompt accident victims or their families to fight for the compensation and justice they deserve.
