The impact almost completely sheared off the front of the Kia sedan, leaving parts of both vehicles scattered in the roadway. The tanker truck came to rest in the median. The tanker was not carrying any hazardous cargo.

Due to the severity of her injuries, the driver of the Kia was transported to the Pinebluff ball field and was airlifted to a trauma center in serious but stable condition. The truck driver was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The N.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
