One Person Injured In Dump Truck Crash

Two drivers were injured Monday after a car somehow got in the path of a truck.

It happened off of NC 903 in Winterville around 6 P.M.

Highway Patrol Troopers say one car made a left-hand turn in front of dump truck.

The dump truck hit the car on the drivers side door and both cars ended up in a ditch on the side of the road.

Winterville firefighters had to cut the top off of the car to get the person inside out.

The fire chief says he was taken by EastCare to Pitt County Memorial Hospital -- where his condition is unknown.

The driver of the truck was also taken to the hospital -- but escaped injury.

Highway Patrol says the driver will be charged with failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign.
