ROCKINGHAM — One woman and two toddlers were transported by Cordova Fire & Rescue to nearby FirstHealth Richmond Memorial Hospital Wednesday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash on Long Drive at Richmond Memorial Drive.

The collision occurred shortly after 2 p.m. in front of Northeast Medical Park and involved a white Jeep Cherokee Sport and a beige Toyota Camera. Both vehicles had North Carolina tags; the Jeep had dealer tags affixed to the vehicle.
