A sausage delivery truck failed to stop for a stop sign in Red Springs, North Carolina on Tuesday, October 7. The truck collided with another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle, Morris Pounds, was critically injured and a passenger did not report injuries.
The truck was driven by Tony G. Norwood of Goldsboro. According to reports, Norwood ran the stop sign at the intersection of N.C. 211 and Old Lowery Road.
