Police say that four people, including a 1-year-old, sustained personal injuries in a three-vehicle accident on Raeford Road in Fayetteville on the morning of May 4.


The accident occurred shortly after 7 a.m. at the intersection of Raeford Road and Revere Drive.


According to Fayetteville police spokesman Dan Grubb, 34-year-old Raeford resident Amaury Romanjusino was eastbound in a Dodge Magnum when a Ford Taurus driven by 23-year-old Fayetteville resident Latasha Matthews turned left in front of him at a traffic signal.


The Dodge collided with the Taurus, resulting in the car spinning around and striking a Nissan driven by 36-year-old Fayetteville resident Melessia Richardson-Hawkins.


Matthews and her two passengers, her 1-year-old son Josiah Russell and 26-year-old Fayetteville resident Hedrick Russell, received transport to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Romanjusino was also taken to the hospital.


Grubb said that the toddler was released after undergoing treatment.


Grubbs said that the adults’ conditions were not available, but none of the injuries were considered to be life-threatening.


Police cited Matthews for failure to yield the right of way, according to Grubb.
