Firefighters extricated a driver in a Pinebluff accident; however, no serious injuries were reported in the two-vehicle crash Saturday.
The accident occurred in the northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 1 near the intersection with Albany Avenue at 7:20 p.m.
A Cadillac sedan was traveling north of U.S. Highway 1 when it was struck in the side by a Chrysler minivan. The impact sent the Cadillac off the side of the road where the driver’s side of the car slammed into a large pine tree. This caused the driver to become entrapped in the vehicle.
Firefighters had to use hydraulic tools to open the crushed door and extricate the driver. The male driver was treated at the scene by paramedics. No one was injured in the minivan.
One lane of traffic was shut down for a period of time while emergency crews worked.
N.C. Highway Patrol was on the scene and is investigating the cause of the accident.
Responding to the scene were Aberdeen Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, Pinebluff Police, Moore County Sheriff’s Department and N.C. Highway Patrol.
