— Three people suffered minor injuries late Tuesday after a tractor-trailer and a Honda Pilot crashed at the intersection of U.S. Highway 1 and Purnell Road in Wake Forest, according to troopers.

The tractor-trailer was heading north on U.S. 1 and the Pilot was going west on Purnell Road when they crashed into each other, authorities said. The Pilot came to rest in the middle of the road and was hit by a mo-ped and a Ford Windstar.

The tractor-trailer stopped on the shoulder and leaked diesel fuel from a tank on the passenger side, authorities said.

Emergency crews took three people to a hospital with minor injuries. They were all treated and released. Authorities declined to release their names.

Troopers said they don't know what caused the crash.

"Due to a lack of evidence from witnesses, no charges will be filed," according to the trooper who worked the crash.

No other information was available.
