Cumberland County News

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – A section of a major road in Fayetteville reopened Wednesday morning hours after a single-vehicle jump-and-run crash, police said.

Fayetteville police officers responded to a single-vehicle crash involving a utility pole at 2:09 a.m. on Murchison Road at Shaw Road, officials said.

Due to the damage to the pole and utility lines down across the road, the intersection was closed for around five hours until repairs could be made, according to police.

Authorities said they’re unsure if anyone was injured in the crash because anyone inside the vehicle had already fled the scene before officers got there.
