Selma, NC (June 20, 2021) – A two-car crash left three people hospitalized with serious injuries on Saturday evening, June 19.
Per reports from authorities, the crash occurred just before 9:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Highway 42 at Thanksgiving Fire Department Road. A minivan and passenger car collided at the intersection, and the impact caused the minivan to roll over, pinning the driver inside. The sedan ran off the road as a result of the crash, trapping two people in the vehicle. Rescue units from the Thanksgiving Fire Department and Archer Lodge Fire Department responded shortly after and extricated the victims.
Johnston County EMS transported the three injured people via ambulance to Wake Medical Center in Raleigh. Their current conditions and identifying information have not been released.
The intersection was closed for more than an hour while troopers with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol investigated.
The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
