On June 30, a man from Spring Lake required air transport to UNC Hospital for the personal injuries he suffered when his car crashed into a tractor trailer on N.C. 690, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

According to a spokesperson from the hospital, 61-year-old Vincent Bernard Scurry was listed in fair condition.

According to the report Trooper Darrell Barber filed, the wreck occurred shortly before 2 p.m. approximately three miles east of Vass.

According to Barber, Scurry was eastbound in a 1995 Buick when the vehicle crossed the center line and collided with a westbound Peterbilt truck.

The driver of the truck, which was registered to GS Materials Inc., was driven by 29-year-old Sanford resident Eric Ashworth.

Reports say Scurry was pinned inside the vehicle and N.C. 690 had to be briefly closed.

A passenger in Scurry’s vehicle, 42-year-old Spring Lake resident Mary Munnerlyn, received transport to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. Her condition was not made available, but according to reports, she may have suffered a broken leg.

The report did not cite speed or alcohol as factors, but said that Scurry was not wearing his seat belt.

Police cited Scurry for driving left of center.
