Late Saturday afternoon Mount Olive firefighters were dispatched to the scene of a one vehicle accident in the 100 block of Garner Chapel Road in Duplin County.
A black Dodge Charger operated by a single male driver had rounded a sharp curve and ran off the left side of the road and crashed head-on into a steel utility pole. The driver managed to get out of the vehicle and was somewhat disoriented while waiting for an EMS unit from Duplin County to arrive on the scene.
Firefighters set up traffic control through the crash scene. Duplin EMS took the driver with non life threatening injuries to the hospital. The accident is under an investigation by the Highway Patrol in Duplin County. The driver will possibly be charged with multiple charges.
