WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Wilmington police are still investigating a Saturday night wreck that sent three people to the hospital and shut down part of South College Road near the intersection with Wrightsville Avenue.
A spokeswoman for the police department said officers responded to the intersection around 9:20 p.m. and found a Honda car had suffered major front and driver-side damage after hitting a utility pole, leaving the driver pinned in.
A truck was in the middle of the intersection with heavy front-end damage as well.
The spokeswoman said the truck’s driver sustained head injuries and a passenger was thrown from the vehicle a distance of about 30 feet.
The driver of the Honda, a 28-year-old man, the driver of the truck, a 46-year-old man, and a passenger in the truck, a 37-year-old woman, were all taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment and have since been released from the hospital.
Police believe alcohol was a factor and charges are pending.
No other details about the wreck, including which driver was a fault, have been released.
Southbound lanes of South College Rd. and part of Wrightsville Avenue were closed for several hours as emergency responders worked and crews cleaned up debris.
