A teenager from Henderson was hospitalized with critical personal injuries after a two-vehicle accident in Franklin County on the evening of October 14.
According to North Carolina State Troopers, 17-year-old Tiffani Jobe was a passenger in a truck driven by 16-year-old Warrenton resident Elizabeth Stewart on N.C. Highway 39 at Epsom Rocky Ford Road when Steward turned left in front of an oncoming truck, resulting in a near-head-on collision.
Stewart and her 12-year-old brother underwent treatment at Maria Parham Medical Center in Henderson. The other truck’s driver, 45-year-old Louisburg resident Stephan Brigandi, was in good condition at WakeMed in Raleigh as of October 17.
Jobe was taken to WakeMed and listed in critical condition from blood loss, two broken legs, a broken pelvis, and internal organ damage.
Troopers charged Stewart with failure to yield the right of way.
