One person was injured in a three vehicle accident that partially blocked the highway Friday afternoon in Southern Pines.
Emergency responders were dispatched just before 3:30 pm to a report of a vehicle accident on US Highway 15-501 near the intersection in Voit Gilmore Lane.
The first arriving fire unit reported one of the northbound lanes as well as the turning lane on US 15-501 to be blocked to traffic by the accident between three passenger cars.
According to officials at the scene one victim was transported from the accident by ambulance to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital with injuries reported as not life-threatening.
One northbound lane of US 15-501 remained temporarily blocked while the victim was assisted and the vehicles removed from the scene causing delays for drivers passing through the area.
Responding to this incident were units with Southern Pines Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, and the Southern Pines Police Department.
