     Injuries to one woman did not appear life threatening following a three-vehicle crash on US 701 at NC 410 at East Tabor at 9 a.m. Monday.

     Video of the crash from a surveillance system at Long’s Outdoor Equipment enhances the argument, business owner Joe Long said, that a signal light is needed at the intersection that has seen numerous wrecks during the 17 years the business has been there.
