A three-vehicle collision resulted in the temporary closure of Currituck Road, just north of that road’s intersection with Main Street, shortly before noon, July 27. A Mercedes-Benz C 300 sedan traveling south on Currituck crashed into the rear of a Volkswagen Passat. The Passat was then pushed into the rear end of a Honda CR-V. Newtown police officers, Hook & Ladder firefighters, and a Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps crew responded to the scene. The female driver of the Mercedes was transported to the hospital; the male drivers of the two other vehicles were checked for injuries but did not require further medical evaluation. No additional information was available as this week’s paper went to press. —Bee Photo, Hicks
