Highway 43 Reopens After Two Vehicle Crash

A head-on crash involving two sport utility vehicles closed down Highway 43, south of Greenville, for part of Friday morning.

The Highway Patrol says the accident happened around 10:15 near Page Road, that's just south of D.H. Conley High School.

Troopers say a white Ford Explorer was heading north on Highway 43 when it crossed the center line and struck an oncoming Ford Excursion. The Excursion went into a ditch, hit a utility pole and landed on its top. That pole snapped and caused power lines to fall.

The Highway Patrol says both drivers were taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital and they believe those injuries not to be serious. Right now there is no word on any charges.

The highway has since reopened.
