Just before lunchtime on Thursday, firefighters from Pleasant Grove, Oak Wolfe and Mount Olive as well as several Duplin County EMS units were dispatched to the scene of an accident involving a passenger car and 18-wheeler at the intersection Bethel Church Road and Tram Road in Duplin County. Firefighters and EMS personnel freed three people and transported them to Duplin Hospital. Firefighters at the scene shut down the road due to the overturned semi. According to officials at the scene, the about half full feed truck was heading west on Tram Road while the passenger vehicle was heading south on Bethel Church Road when they collided at the intersection. The State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. The section of Tram Road had to be shut down for several hours as heavy wreckers worked to upright the feed truck.
