Cars smash head-on in Orange County north of Hillsborough

HILLSBOROUGH (WTVD) -- Emergency workers pulled three people from the wreckage Thursday after a serious head-on crash north of Hillsborough in Orange County on NC-86 at Hawkins Road.

Pictures from Chopper 11 HD showed a sedan and a larger SUV both with heavy front-end damage.

Troopers said one car crossed the center line, but they were working to determine who was at fault.

Both drivers were flown to Duke hospital and an 80-year-old passenger in the SUV also was seriously hurt.
