The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office and Bethany Fire Department were on the scene providing traffic control as Johnston County EMS tended to the injured. That’s when witnesses said a pickup truck towing a trailer hauling a skid steer crashed into the parked EMS medic unit. The pickup narrowly missed several bystanders and first responders.
