Moore County Accident Leaves Three Injured
Early this morning, two women were airlifted to UNC Hospitals as a result of an automobile collision in Moore County. Another driver, who sustained less severe injuries, was taken to a nearby hospital.
The accident occurred around 7 am on Highway 690 at Morrison Bridge Road in the town of Vass. Reports say that a black Volkswagen sedan collided with a blue Chevy GEO after the Chevy pulled out from a stop sign. The GEO, which was carrying the two women who were later airlifted to the hospital, overturned and landed near a body of water. Details of their injuries are unknown. The driver of the Volkswagen suffered non-life threatening injuries, was taken to Firsthealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst. NC 690 remained shut down for more than an hour this morning as crews worked to clear the scene.
It is always upsetting to see accidents like this occur. While it is not possible to control the actions of other drivers, there are steps that you can take as a driver to practice extreme caution while on the road, including:
Driving Safety Tips
- Nationwide Insurance encourages drivers to “Always use caution when changing lanes. Cutting in front of someone, changing lanes too fast or not using your signals may cause an accident or upset other drivers.”
- Stay focused on the road. Things like rowdy passengers, cell phones, and MP3 players can cause distractions from concentrating on the road.
- When pulling away from a stop sign or stop light, check twice. Look left, right, and then left again to make sure no cars are coming before pulling out.
- When approaching an intersection, always slow down in case drivers coming from other directions run a stop sign or stop light. It is best to slow down by a few MPH when passing through an intersection.
- Always wear a seat belt.
