“I can’t divulge the information about his condition other than the fact that he was taken by basic life support or BLS truck which is not critical,” said Magnolia Police Department Capt. Jason Holliday.
Part of U.S. 117 was closed while officials responded to the wreck. More than three surrounding agencies were on the scene, including the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
