Two people were flown to a trauma center today for treatment following a crash which occurred in the Cook Out parking lot.

Roanoke Rapids police Chief Chuck Hasty said bystanders helped free two victims who were pinned underneath the suspect car.

Five people in all were struck, Hasty said in a statement.

The crash occurred shortly before noon when the driver of the suspect vehicle accelerated and lost control of the vehicle while exiting the McDonald’s parking lot off Julian R. Allsbrook Highway.

The vehicle ended up in the Cook Out driveway where it straddled the median separating Cook Out from McDonald’s.

EMS transported the injured to Halifax Regional for treatment of injuries.

The driver was taken into custody and charges are pending, Hasty said.
