LAUREL HILL – The drivers involved in a two-car accident at the intersection of Corbett and Rockingham Roads have both been charged.

A 2014 Nissan being operated by Kinequa Grahamrange of Laurel Hill ran a stop sign and hit a 2004 Ford being driven by Michael Van Gibson also of Laurel Hill late Saturday, according to Sgt. Kevin Pearson with North Carolina Highway Patrol.

All drivers and passengers involved in the accident were transported to Scotland Memorial Hospital for accident related injuries or possible injuries, according to Pearson.

Grahamrange has been charged with failure to yield right of way. Gibson was charged with driving while license revoked.

The mother of one accident victim suffered a stroke after she arrived at the scene. A life flight chopper — on standby for the accident — was called in to transport the woman to Chapel Hill, according to Roylin Hammond director of Scotland County Emergency Operations.

“When we got back to the station we were paged to set up the landing zone for the helicopter,” said William Skipper of the Laurel Hill Fire Department.
