Two people avoided injury despite being involved in a two-vehicle collision between a tanker truck and a compact sedan Friday afternoon in Hamlet.


Keyona Franklin, of Hamlet, was operating her four-door passenger car and attempted to turn right, out of the Food Lion grocery store parking lot onto eastbound Highway 74 Business.


“I don’t think she saw him,” said Sgt. Richard Jordan of the Hamlet Police Department.


An empty tanker truck, driven by Monquall Graham, of Maxton, struck the left front end of Franklin’s vehicle and pushed it several feet before coming to a stop.


Both vehicles were disabled and had to be towed from the scene.


Franklin was transported by Hamlet Fire and Rescue to Sandhills Regional Medical Center but Jordan said she appeared to be alright.


“I’m glad she was fine,” Jordan said. “I was amazed she did not get hurt.”


Hamlet Police Department Officer Britt Emeret was in charge of the investigation. Neither driver was cited in the incident, Jordan said.


Arlo’s Wrecker Service hauled Franklin’s car away, Jordan said, while Watson Wrecker Services took the tanker from the scene.


Jordan noted that the tanker was empty and the only fluid that leaked from either vehicle was antifreeze, which was quickly cleaned up by Hamlet firefighters.
