Two teenagers were flown to Greenville after their SUV rear-ended a piece of farm equipment on a four-lane highway.
State troopers say the crash happened on U.S. 64 at milepost 510 in Martin County just before noon.
The Highway Patrol says the equipment was being moved from one farm to another when it was struck. A lull is used to load large bales of hay and troopers say it was okay to be on the limited access highway.
The lull was traveling about 30 miles per hour when it was hit by the oncoming Jeep Cherokee that was doing about 70.
The farm employee was taken to Martin General with minor injuries. Troopers say neither the male driver, nor his female passenger were wearing seatbelts.
The Highway Patrol says the teen driver never hit his brakes before impact and will be charged with failure to reduce speed.
