All lanes of Highway 17 north of New Bern reopened just after 10:00 p.m. Tuesday following an accident involving a truck and car. Five people were injured, we're told the injuries are not life-threatening.

Troopers believe one of the vehicles tried to avoid hitting a deer just after 7:00 p.m. when it crossed the center line and hit the other vehicle on US-17 at Aurora Road in Craven County.

No one had been charged as of late Tuesday.
