One person was transported to the hospital after a collision on 15-501 in Pinehurst Tuesday afternoon around 5:15 pm.
A Domino’s delivery driver was struck in the rear corner of the car ripping the rear tire off the vehicle. The driver of a white Trailblazer tried to swerve to avoid a t-bone collision with the Saturn which could have ended up much worse.
The driver was removed from the vehicle by firefighters and EMS and transported to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the white Chevrolet Trailblazer that struck the Saturn was not transported to the hospital.
The accident shut down both southbound lanes of 15-501 as emergency crews worked. Northbound lanes were down to one lane just as people were leaving work with traffic backed up and slow moving through the area.
Pinehurst Police were on the scene investigating the accident. Also responding to the accident were Pinehurst Fire & Rescue and Moore County EMS.
