HOFFMAN — A man was taken to a hospital Friday afternoon after losing control of his car and colliding with a tractor-trailer.

The unnamed driver was traveling south on U.S. 1 around 1:44 p.m. when he lost control of his ‘96 Ford Taurus and started spinning, before striking a Perdue feed truck in the inside northbound lane, according to Trooper W. Maynor with the N.C. State Highway Patrol.

The trooper said the back end of the car hit the front end of the truck, just south of the BP gas station. The back end of the car was crushed in to just behind the front row of seats.

According to the trooper, the rainy weather played a factor, as did the tires on the Taurus, which were worn down to the wire.

The vehicles were moved from the roadway to the gas station parking lot, freeing up all lanes for travel around 4:30 p.m.

The driver of the car was the only one injured and was taken to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.

The trooper did not yet have any details on injuries and the wreck is still under investigation.
