Troopers investigating 5 car collision in Pitt County

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) –  A head-on collision late Monday night sent four people to the hospital.

It happened along US 13 and 264 alternate, just west of Greenville in Pitt County

Troopers said five vehicles were involved and four people were transported to Vidant Medical Center.

The call came in around 9 p.m. after a Cadillac Escalade hit the car that appeared to be making a U-turn in the middle of the road causing a chain reaction.

Anstacita Edwards missed the accident by seconds.

“There was a car sitting in the middle of the road, didn’t have any lights on and so the SUV that was coming down the road, didn’t see him, he slammed right into the other car in front of the jeep, it slammed right into the jeep,” she said.

Trooper A.B. Smith said some of the drivers involved were cited for not having drivers’ licenses. More charges are pending and the accident is still under investigation.
