Two people were rushed to the hospital after two SUV’s collided Monday morning at the intersection of Buffalo Road and Durwood Stephenson Highway in Smithfield. The collision occurred shortly after 11:00am between a gray Dodge and burgundy Nissan. The Nissan overturned then came to rest on its wheels off the roadway.
Smithfield fire crews used hydraulic rescue tools to open the doors to the Nissan to allow paramedics to reach the two vehicle occupants. Both were transported to the hospital by Johnston County EMS. No one in the Dodge SUV was transported.
Smithfield Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
