Posted February 28, 2006

— Authorities said several people were injured in a passenger vehicle collision with a tractor-trailer Tuesday afternoon in northern Cumberland County.

The accident happened on N.C. Highway 401 at Ramsey Street and East Reeves Bridge Road when Monte Weber, 43, in his Honda CR-V, drove through a stop sign on Reeves Bridge Road, and ran into the side of the flatbed tractor-trailer, which then traveled about 600 feet before stopping.

Weber was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Three passengers in the sport utility vehicle were also taken to the hospital: Larry Weber, 70, who was listed in serious condition at UNC Hospitals Tuesday night ; Tony Weber, 21, who was ejected from the SUV, but suffered non-life-threatening injuries; and a 4-year-old child who was treated and released.

The truck's driver, whose identity was not immediately known, was not injured.

The state Highway Patrol said Weber will be charged with driving through a stop sign.
