DURHAM, N.C. -

A single-vehicle accident on I-85 near Club Boulevard in Durham left five injured, but none seriously.

According to authorities, a Toyota Yaris was traveling southbound on I-85 at approximately 5:35 p.m. Sunday when the tread came off a tire and caused the car to veer off the road to the right. The car rolled at least three times.

Two adults and three children were in the car and all were trapped for a period of time before emergency officials were able to get them out. No one was seriously injured.

Southbound I-85 was closed for close to one hour as crews responded to the crash.

The driver of the vehicle has been identified as Annette McGill of Charlotte. All five in the car were family members, four from North Carolina and one from Virginia.

No other vehicles were involved. The names of the other four victims have not been released.
