Woman Airlifted From Accident Scene

The Highway Patrol says a woman from Trenton was airlifted from an accident scene after she drifted across the center line and hit two tree-trimming trucks.

The wreck happened on Comfort Highway in the Onslow County town of Richlands around 6 a.m. Thursday.

Trooper TW McCoy says 26-year-old Shana Philyaw sideswiped one truck and directly hit the other. Philyaw's car is totaled, McCoy said. The tree trucks had to be towed away.

Three men from one of the trucks were taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital for treatment. Trooper McCoy says Philyaw was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville.
