One person was injured after a two vehicle collision on Old US #1 in Southern Pines Thursday evening. The impact sent one vehicle into the side of the former Crossroads Ford building.
The accident involved a white Honda SUV and a four door Chevrolet passenger car. The three occupants of the Honda was uninjured in the accident.
The male driver of the Chevrolet was transported by EMS to Moore Regional Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The building housed Crossroads Ford until the end of July when it moved to a new location on US #1. Traffic in the area was rerouted until the roadway could be cleared.
This is the third crash into a building in eight days. One person was in critical condition after an accident on 15-501 in front of Cook-Out Saturday evening. The three car accident ended with a pick-up truck crashing into the Verizon Store. The Ford F250 slammed into a blue Ford Focus just prior to crashing into the store. Last week, one person was airlifted with serious injuries after striking the Heritage Church of God in Vass.
Responding to the scene were Southern Pines Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, and Southern Pines Police Department. Southern Pines Police Department is investigating the cause of the accident.
