Selma Fire and EMS crews work to remove three accident victims from this Lincoln that was struck on NC96 North Tuesday afternoon.

A 90-year-old woman was seriously injured in a two car accident Tuesday afternoon on Highway 96 near Selma . The Highway Patrol said the collision occurred after 28-year-old Alysia Mayhut of Selma pulled her 2001 Saturn from a stop sign on Old Beulah Road into the side of a 1988 Lincoln traveling north on NC96. All three occupants in the Lincoln were injured, including the driver, Shirley Whack, 64, and two passengers, 90-year-old Lenetta Knight and 72-year-old Annie Sanders, all of Selma . Mayhut was cited by Trooper J.C. Goins with failure to yield. Trooper Goins estimated Whack was traveling northbound at 55mph, when Mayhut pulled from the stop sign, and was traveling at 10mph, at the time the vehicles collided.
