NEW INFO: Pickup Truck Flips; Good Samaritan Injured By Debris

Four people were sent to the hospital in a weather-related accident in Kinston this morning. One of those injured was a good Samaritan who came to help those in the crash.

It happened on North Queen Street in Kinston in front of the Greater Kinston Credit Union.

Police tell us a pickup truck heading north on Queen hit standing water and hydroplaned. The pickup took out a road sign, and another sign at the credit union before flipping over and landing on its side.

Stephanie Murphy and her two children, ages 5 and 7 years old, were inside the pickup truck. Authorities say all three were treated and released from Lenoir Memorial Hospital.

Police also say a woman who came over to help was also sent to the hospital when she tripped over some of the accident debris and broke her ankle.
