A real mess Monday afternoon with Winterville police investigating two accidents right next to each other that involved five vehicles.
Police tell us the first crash happened around 1:20 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 11 and Davenport Farm Road. Three cars were involved in that crash which police say was caused when a car ran a red light. One of the vehicles in that crash was a wrecker.
The second crash happened when a driver didn't stop in time for the traffic backup caused by the first accident, police say.
Two people were taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
