A head-on collision in Nash County that resulted in 10 people requiring hospital transport for the personal injuries they suffered on Thanksgiving morning is under investigation by the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
Authorities say that shortly after 10 a.m. on November 26, two sport utility vehicles collided after one of the SUVs crossed the center line of Graham Brantley Road near Broken Road.
According to what the female driver of one SUV told a trooper, one of her children distracted her just before she lost control.
None of the injuries suffered in the crash are believed to be life-threatening. One adult and three children, ages 4, 6, and 10, were in the SUV that crossed the line. They received transport to WakeMed in Raleigh.
The occupants of the other SUV were three adults and three children, ages 4, 5, and 9. They received transport to Nash General Hospital in Rocky Mount and Wilson Medical Center in Wilson.
According to the NCHP, charges are pending.
