Raleigh, NC (November 14, 2020) – Around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday evening, November 14, a deputy was injured in a Raleigh intersection crash.
According to police, the collision took place at the intersection of Chelsea Drive and Banks Road around the area of US-401. According to the Wake County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was traveling behind a white van on Banks Road. The driver of the van made a right turn at the intersection onto Chelsea Drive.
The driver then decided to make a U-turn to get back onto Banks Road but did not see the deputy. This caused both vehicles to collide with one another.
Both the deputy and the unidentified driver of the van were taken to WakeMed Cary with a variety of injuries but they are expected to recover.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for some time.
The North Carolina State Highway Patrol continues its investigation into the accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
