Driver injured after crashing into parked vehicle

An accident in Carthage sent a man to the hospital and damaged a parked truck.

According to authorities on scene, the crash happened around 11 a.m. Friday on McReynolds Street when the male driver of a Ford F150 truck traveling east passed out and crashed into the rear of a Ford F250 that was parked along the side of the street.

The F150 pushed the F250 just over one hundred feet before causing the unoccupied truck to crash into a power pole, according to officials.

The impact did not damage the pole, but it did knock the power meter off the pole and damaged a cable box that was also mounted on the pole.

The power meter box was laying under the front of the F250, and the fuel tank had been ruptured on the truck causing a fuel spill which made the scene more complicated for emergency personnel.

The driver of the F150 was the only occupant and was transported to Moore Regional Hospital to be checked out for nonlife threatening injuries.

McReynolds Street was down to one lane for almost two hours while crews worked the scene and repairs could be made.

Responding to the scene were Carthage Fire Department, Carthage Police Department, Moore County EMS and Duke Energy.
