Car Slams Into Tree Near Benson

The Highway Patrol is investigating whether a problem with a tire led to a serious accident Thursday evening on Hannah Creek Road near Interstate 95. Danielle Lynn Price, 23, of Benson was traveling down the roadway in her Mazda when it veered sharply off the roadway and slammed head-on into a tree. The crash was so violent it took rescue crews from Benson Fire and EMS forty minutes to extricate her from the wreckage. Trooper D.E. Edwards told WMPM a witness to the accident was traveling behind Price and said they saw a tire on her car blow out at the same time Price lost control of her car. Another witness said he heard a loud pop before hearing the crash. Price was taken to WakeMed for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, Trooper Edwards said.
