Two people were transported to the hospital after a two-vehicle accident outside of Robbins Tuesday night.
The vehicles were traveling east on Highway 24/27 near Sunset Drive. According to authorities on the scene, a Jeep Cherokee rear-ended a Chevrolet Equinox.
Rainy conditions could have impacted the accident, but the exact cause is unclear and is being investigated by North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The driver and passenger of the Equinox were transported to Moore Regional Hospital by Moore County EMS. They suffered minor injuries. The male driver of the Jeep was uninjured.
