A two-vehicle wreck sent two people to a local hospital Wednesday afternoon.
The crash occurred when a white minivan collided with a black sedan after the driver of the sedan failed to yield near the intersection of Drexel Road and N.C. 18 South around 2:10 p.m., according to Trooper Ellis with the State Highway Patrol.
The driver and passenger of the minivan were taken to Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge-Morganton with minor injuries, Ellis said.
Ellis cautioned drivers to pay attention and be aware of their surroundings at all times.
