A North Carolina man was driving a truck and pulling a trailer northbound along I-81 Saturday when he had some sort of medical emergency.

Near mile marker 262, close to New Market, the man passed out. His wife tried to steer the truck from the passenger seat. The truck wound up careening off the road, up a steep embankment, and then it overturned.

The couple was trapped for about an hour as rescue workers made sure the truck didn't roll over again. The two were taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital.
