A driver escaped injury after a rollover accident in Pinebluff Saturday afternoon. The single-vehicle accident occurred on U.S. Highway 1 northbound and Ryder Cup Boulevard just before noon.
The Jeep was heading northbound when he ran off the left-hand side of the road and lost control. The vehicle came back onto the road and slid sideways off the right-hand side flipping over and slamming into a large tree.
One northbound lane was shut down while emergency crews worked. Debris was scattered along the roadside.
The Highway Patrol was on the scene and is investigating the cause of the accident.
Responding to the scene were Pinebluff Fire & Rescue, Aberdeen Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, and the NC Highway Patrol.
