A two vehicle accident in front of Bob’s Pizza on US 1 sent one person to the hospital with potentially serious injuries.  The accident occurred when a Cadillac Escalade turned into the path of a Hyundai Elantra that was heading south on US 1 Saturday evening at 6:20.  The impact of the collision sent the Elantra spinning 180 degrees, and came to rest facing the opposite direction with extensive front end damage.  The driver of the Elantra suffered potentially serious injuries, and was transported by Moore County EMS.  The Escalade upon impact slid off the side of the road with its rear passenger tire being sheared off.  The driver of the Escalade was not transported to the hospital.  Southbound traffic was merged into one lane and slow going while emergency crews remained on scene.  Responding to the scene were Cypress Pointe Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, Moore County Sheriff’s Department, and the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
