CLAYTON — Two teens were injured in a car crash on the way to Corinth Holders High Thursday morning. A Clayton woman faces several traffic charges in the wake of a crash that occurred Thursday morning as she was taking three students to Corinth Holders High School.
While making a left onto Covered Bridge Road from Archer Lodge Road, Christie Minga, of 3432 N.C.42, Clayton pulled into the path of an oncoming van, driven by Joseph Jones, of 108 Cover Court, Clayton. Minga had three 15-year-olds in her Buick at the time of the wreck. None of them were wearing seatbelts, according to N.C. Highway Patrol trooper C.T. Oravitz.
Two of the teens were transported to WakeMed, including one who was transported to the trauma unit. He is now in stable condition. One of the teens injured was Minga’s son, and the others were riding with her to be dropped off at school.
Minga has been charged with failing to yield, failure to wear a seatbelt, and a child restraint violation, since the boys, who were all under 16, were not wearing seatbelts.
Jones, 40, the driver of the Ford Van, was not injured.
