DURHAM — Police say a Durham man was seriously injured when he drove his Ford Mustang through a stop sign and into the side of a tractor-trailer truck at the intersection of Broad and Carver streets on the north side of town Friday morning.
Steven Hall, 24, of Cherrycrest Drive was trapped in his car for at least 30 minutes before he could be freed by Durham firefighters, according to police. He was conscious and alert when he was taken to the hospital, police said.
Police say Hall was driving north on Broad Street at about 6:35 a.m. when he apparently ran the stop sign at Carver Street. His Mustang ended up wedged under the trailer of the truck driven by Wade Bliss of Henderson. Bliss received minor injuries, police said.
The intersection of Broad and Carver streets was closed for several hours after the accident.
