The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that a three-vehicle accident involving a Moore County van caused personal injuries and caused traffic on N.C. 211 at West End to be blocked for more than an hour on August 23.
The van’s driver, 46-year-old Lynda Thomas, was cited for driving left of center, according to investigating Trooper Kenny Evans. According to Moor County Public Information Officer Eli Arroyo-Allen, she is a driver for the Moore County Transportation System.
Evans said the accident took place shortly after 9:30 a.m.
Thomas, the lone occupant of the van, was westbound on N.C. 211 when her vehicle crossed the center line and struck an eastbound Isuzu driven by 47-year-old Robbins resident Kameron Kivett. The truck was registered to Gaddy Waste Services.
The impact resulted in the van being sent careening into a second eastbound vehicle driven by 67-year-old Seven Lakes resident Richard Scott. The Volkswagen Scott was driving was behind the Isuzu.
Thomas and Kivett both became trapped inside their vehicles.
Thomas received transport to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital and underwent treatment for cuts and bruises. Scott was not seriously injured.
Kivett received transport to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill and was released after treatment.
