A man and his granddaughter were injured after their mini-van became airborne and flipped several times Friday afternoon in Pitt County.
It happened around 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of Black Jack Simpson Road and Beddard Road, that's outside of Simpson.
The driver, 67-year-old Donald Rumph of Greenville, had to be cut out of the mini-van. He was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. The man's four-year-old granddaughter, Dana Boyd, was also in the van and she was transported via ambulance to the hospital.
Black Jack Simpson Road was shut down because of the crash.
A witness told troopers that it didn't appear that the mini-van was speeding. The van struck a culvert, became airborne and then flipped several times. Troopers are still trying to determine what caused the crash.
