Four avoid injury in Cameron crash

Four people managed to avoid injury after a serious single-vehicle crash between Vass and Cameron on Tuesday morning. The crash occurred shortly before 8:30 a.m. and resulted in lane of U.S. Highway 1 being shut down for over an hour due to the extensive damage. 

The driver of a Hyundai Elantra was traveling northbound on U.S. 1 between Vass and Cameron, just north of North Alma Street, when the vehicle deviated from the highway.

It proceeded to strike the cable fence in the median, roll over, and travel a short distance before coming to a stop on its side while still ensnared in the fence.

Authorities responding to the crash told Sandhills Sentinel that none of the four occupants of the vehicle were seriously injured and were not transported by EMS. All occupants were able to remain on the scene.

The Hyundai sustained extreme damage as a result of the wreck. The front end was badly damaged, airbags were deployed, and parts of the vehicle were ripped off by the cables of the fence. Parts of the body of the car were torn apart and cut through by the steel cables. 

North Carolina State Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash, which is “still under investigation.” No contributing factors were disclosed.

Responding to the scene were the Cypress Pointe Fire Department, Moore County EMS, and North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
