A pair of afternoon accidents happened within minutes of one another on the interstate in Newton County Thursday.
The first happened about 3:30 p.m. on I-20 near the Hickory exit. An 18-wheeler lost control and went into the median.
The second happened just a few minutes later, about a hundred yards from the first wreck, when a car and an 18-wheeler collided, going into the same median.
The drivers of both 18-wheelers were taken to the hospital.
