Friday afternoon wreck sends woman to hospital

Posted

A two vehicle wreck at the intersection of Antioch Church Road and Bait Road sent a woman to the hospital Friday afternoon. 

Firefighters from Erwin Fire and Rescue and EMTs from Dunn Emergency Services responded to the wreck shortly before 4 p.m. 

Kimberly Roberson of Fayetteville said she was traveling on Antioch Church Road in her black Chevrolet Tahoe approaching Bait Road when a woman in a yellow Chevrolet Spark exiting Bait Road turned in front of her.

“I was going straight and the little car just came out,” Roberson said. “I tried to stop — couldn’t stop so that’s why I hit her right on the (driver’s) side.”

The impact of the crash heavily damaged the front end of the Tahoe and crushed the driver’s side door of the Spark, pinning the woman inside.  

A firefighter on scene said the driver of the Spark was extricated and taken by ambulance to Betsy Johnson Hospital before being flown to a Duke Hospital.  

“EMS took her because she was pinned in there,” Roberson said. 

Another firefighter on scene said both women were conscious and alert.  

“I’m glad she’s OK because she’s in such a little car,” Roberson said of the woman driving the Spark.  

Roberson said she herself was a little bruised up and that her chest was hurting from being pummeled by airbags that deployed.
