Just before 4 p.m. Wednesday, authorities were called outside of Robbins to a two-vehicle accident in the 1900 block of N. Howard Mill Road.
When arriving on scene, they saw the driver was pinned in a Chevy SUV. Air Care was put in the air, and Westmoore Fire and Rescue was called to assist with the landing zone, but both were later canceled.
The driver and the passenger of the SUV were taken by ambulance to First Health Moore Regional in Pinehurst. Their condition is unknown at this time.
The driver and passenger of a Ford Focus were later taken to First Health Moore Regional as a precaution.
Both vehicles suffered major damage. The SUV flipped before landing upright off the road.
