Late Monday afternoon, firefighters from Mar-Mac and Thoroughfare were dispatched to the scene of a head-on collision on the 1000 block of Old Grantham Road. A silver vehicle and gold colored vehicle collided on a straight section of Old Grantham Road, completely blocking the roadway in both directions. The fire engines and three county EMS units arrived and they found three victims involved in the accident. Two victims were trapped in the gold car while one female was in the silver car. Firefighters used their power tools to pop the doors on the gold car to gain access to the occupants. Two of the patients were taken to the hospital and the third was taken to the airport in Mount Olive to a medevac helicopter. All three of the victims appeared to have serious injuries. The accident is under an investigation by the State Highway Patrol, and charges are pending due to the outcome of the investigation. No information on the victims’ identities was available at the crash site. Traffic through the area had to be rerouted around the scene.
