Heavy fog and ice on a bridge sparked the wreck, which began at 7:51 a.m. at mile marker 238 near Camp Peary.

David Gough, a sports reporter with The Daily Advance in Elizabeth City, was among those involved in the crash.

The crash involved both the east and westbound lanes, which remained closed through mid-afternoon.
