(EXPJCO): Benson, NC

At around 11:45 PM a small pickup truck ran the stop sign at the Red Hill Church Rd and NC 27 colliding head on into the tankers empty trailer.

Our PCJOT ERV UNIT arrived on scene first and assessed the damage to make sure everyone was okay and to confirm the tankers trailer was empty.

We spoke to the truck driver and he said the truck ran the stop sign and tried to brake; but couldn’t stop in time.

Two people were in the small truck and no one has been been reported majorly injured. No one has been taken to the hospital at the moment and the two suspects in the small truck are being investigated.

There are currently 20 or more emergency personnel vehicles from three different towns including the state troopers.
