Dump Truck, Pickup Collide

A dump truck and pickup truck collided around 3:00PM Wednesday pinning the driver of the pickup truck in the cab of the wreckage.

The two vehicle crash was reported at the intersection of Highway 39 North and Highway 231.

The dump truck, hauling a load of sand, overturned after the impact.  The driver of the truck had to be cut free by Corinth Holders and Antioch Fire Department crews.

Johnston County EMS transported the injured driver to Wake Medical Center for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the dump truck was uninjured.

The NC Department of Transportation responded to remove the sand.  The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office assisted with traffic control.

Charges are pending from the NC Highway Patrol.
