Washington police say a pickup truck was heading east and traveled across the westbound lanes, striking an SUV in a near head-on collision. That SUV ended up over the curb and in the grass.
Timothy Rose of Pinetown, the driver of the pickup, was cited for crossing the center line.
Police say four people were transported to Beaufort County Medial Center with non-life threatening injuries while Gaynell Simmons was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where she's in stable condition.
