GRANITE QUARRY — A woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital with facial injuries after a head-on collision on South Main Street Wednesday afternoon.
Granite Quarry-Faith Police Sgt. Todd Taylor said a red ,older model Jeep traveling south crossed the center line and struck a red northbound Chrysler Sebring about 1:45 p.m.
The driver of the Jeep had “pretty severe facial trauma,” Taylor said.
She was taken by ambulance to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast.
Neighbors said the driver of the Sebring was taken by her mother to an area hospital.
The drivers’ names were not immediately available Wednesday afternoon.
A neighbor, who identified herself only as Cathy, said she was on her porch when the two vehicles hit.
She said she looked up just before the collision.
“The lady in the red jeep just veered over,” Cathy said.
Cathy grabbed the phone and called 911.
By then, the driver of the Jeep had the door open and was trying to get out.
“She was bleeding profusely from her face,” she said. “I grabbed some towels, just held it to her face.”
The driver of the Sebring, who appeared to be in her 20s, didn’t leave the vehicle, she said.
But Cathy said she didn’t appear to have life threatening injuries.
Sgt. Taylor said the driver of the Jeep was charged with driving left of center.
