Princeton, N.C. — A crash on U.S. Highway 70 seriously injured one person and sent a tow truck into a building Friday morning.
The State Highway Patrol said a pickup truck ran a stop sign in Princeton and clipped the tow truck.
The pickup truck ran off the road and into a ditch. The driver was ejected from the pickup truck and was taken to WakeMed with serious injuries.
The tow truck spun and slammed into J.A. Distributors, a gift shop.
The driver of the tow truck was not injured.
The building was deemed unsafe, the State Highway Patrol said.
Lois Arthur works in the building and was running late. When she arrived at work at 8:15 a.m., she saw the tow truck in the building.
“That is just the way the Lord works," Arthur said. "He makes you be late and makes you be early for whatever the reason may be.”
