3 injured when bus from NC Smithfield plant flips in Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Three people were rushed to a hospital after a bus flipped over during a crash with a utility pole in Fayetteville on Monday afternoon, reports said.


The incident happened around 6 p.m. near Wright Street at Old Wilmington Road and closed Old Wilmington Road between Fisher Street and Eastern Boulevard, according to Fayetteville Police.

The road was closed because power lines were knocked down, making the road impassable.

The bus, which flipped on its side, was coming from the Smithfield Packaging Plant in Tar Heel.

One man suffered bleeding from his head in the wreck.

“There was a young man he had a gash on his forehead, he was bleeding really bad and so we gave him a towel for his head, he asked that we call his wife and we did that she could meet him at Cape Fear Hospital,” said Angela Stewart, who was at the scene of the crash.
