A rural intersection known for numerous collisions was the scene of another traffic accident Friday morning.
A roofing company pickup reportedly pulled into the path of an oncoming van at the intersection of Little Creek Church Road at Steel Bridge Road between Smithfield and Clayton.
The crash caused the pickup to overturn in the roadway and the van to spin around and land in a ditch. Occupants in both vehicles sustained minor injuries.
Three people were critically injured in a two vehicle collision at the same intersection in June 2016. At the time a neighbor said they regularly picked up car parts from their yard from the multiple accidents that occur at the intersection.
The NC Highway Patrol, Johnston County EMS, Johnston County Sheriff’s Office, and Wilson’s Mills Fire Department responded to the scene of Friday’s collision. Photos by John Payne
