Four people were taken to area hospitals after a crash on Highway 24/27 near Robbins.
First responders were called to the intersection of Tarry Church Road around 9:30 a.m. Saturday. They arrived to a Jeep Wrangler on its driver’s side, and a Toyota Camry that hit a tree.
According to investigators, the Camry was traveling northbound on Tarry Church Road and crossed the intersection with Hwy 24/27 into the path of the Jeep.
The driver of the Jeep attempted to swerve to avoid the collision but made contact with the driver’s side of the Camry. The impact caused both vehicles to go off the road, with the Jeep overturning on its side and the Camry into a tree.
All occupants of the Camry were taken to area hospitals. Three of them went by ambulance to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital and a fourth by UNC Air Care to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. All of their conditions are non-life-threatening. The driver of the Jeep was not injured.
N.C. State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash, and says the driver of the Camry will be charged with failure to yield and could face more charges pending the investigation results.
Robbins Fire Department, along with Westmoore Fire Department, assisted Moore County EMS with patient care. Moore County Sheriff’s Department controlled traffic around the scene.
