Crews respond to two-vehicle crash on Morganton Road

Two people were sent to the hospital, and several lanes of Morganton Road were shut down after a two-vehicle crash on Monday in Southern Pines.

According to first responders, the incident happened shortly after noon near the entrance to Pinecrest Plaza. Investigators say a Mercedes C230 failed to yield and turned into the path of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

The two passengers in the Monte Carlo were transported to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries. The occupants of the Mercedes were uninjured in the crash.

The driver of the Mercedes could be facing multiple charges.

Responding to the scene were Southern Pines Fire Department, Southern Pines Police, Moore County EMS, and North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
