A woman was airlifted in critical condition after a car crash Thursday afternoon. The two-vehicle accident occurred in Aberdeen at the intersection of Highway 211 and Glasgow Street.
A Toyota sedan was heading east on Highway 211 when a Chevrolet SUV came through the stop sign at Glasgow and into the path of the Toyota, according to authorities.
The impact sent the SUV over an embankment where it came to rest upside down. The Toyota remained in the road with extensive front-end damage, and debris scattered on the highway.
The SUV was carrying four adults and three children. The woman airlifted was a passenger in the SUV. EMS transported her to a landing zone not far from the crash where a helicopter landed to take the victim to a trauma center. None of the children were injured, but several other people were being evaluated at the scene.
Responding to the scene were Aberdeen Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, Aberdeen Police, and Rockwell Towing.
