The emergency call for help was received at approximately 2:05 p.m. Units from Rockingham Police Department, Rockingham Fire Department, FirstHealth EMS, North Carolina State Highway Patrol and North Carolina Department of Transportation responded to the scene at 220 and North Lee Street.

As first-responders arrived, a man and apparent driver of the GMC Denali had exited the vehicle and sat upright on the ground. The female driver of the Hyundai Elantra, meanwhile, remained in her vehicle, which — according to the skid marks — had been pushed from the northbound lane of 220 into a ditch on the west side of the south bound lane.

Both drivers appeared alert and conscious as they were transported to Richmond Memorial Hospital for additional medical treatment. Details of the incident, which is being investigated by Cpl. Marcus Ricks of the Rockingham Police Department, were not immediately available.
