Workers at a Lenoir County convenience store pulled a woman out of a burning vehicle this afternoon after a crash that involved three vehicles.
State troopers say the crash happened on Highway 70 and Eason Road, that's west of Kinston.
First Sgt. C.L. Johnston says charges are pending against 83-year-old Luther Apperson of Beaufort. Johnston says Apperson was in the median and didn't yield to an oncoming vehicle that was heading west. That vehicle was driven by Keymony Baker of Kinston.
Baker's vehicle went through the parking lot of Falling Creek Service Center and ended up knocking down a light pole. That pole fell on a parked pickup truck. Baker's vehicle caught fire and ended up in a grassy area near the store. Store employees had to pull a woman passenger out of the burning car.
Both drivers and the woman were sent to the hospital but we don't know yet the extent of their injuries.
