July 09--A State Highway Patrol trooper and another driver were injured Monday afternoon in a head-on collision on N.C. 27 near Bailey Road, west of Benson, the patrol says.
The extent of their injuries is not known.
The trooper's patrol car was traveling west on rain-slickened N.C. 27, about two miles west of the Benson limits, and a van was traveling east when one of the vehicles apparently crossed the center line and the two collided, patrol spokesman Jeff Gordon said. It is unclear which vehicle crossed the line.
The accident happened about 2:55 p.m.
More details will be reported as they are available.
