Accident Closes Down Onslow County Highway

An accident this morning closed down a busy Onslow County highway for a couple hours.

Piney Green Road, between Old 30 and Rocky Run Road, has since reopened.

The crash happened around 8:40 a.m. and involved two vehicles.

Trooper T.W McCoy says 71-year-old Oscar Washington was charged with failure to yield after making a left turn. McCoy says the man turned onto Burnett Drive in front of another vehicle. That other vehicle ended up in a ditch and the driver was taken to Onslow Memorial with what are believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

Washington was also charged with driving with no insurance and a revoked license tag.
