OLIVIA, N.C. (WNCN) — Two adults died and two children were among three people injured in a head-on wreck early Thursday afternoon in Harnett County, officials said.

Of the three injured, one was flown to WakeMed for treatment while the other two were taken to a nearby hospital in ambulances.
Two people involved in the wreck had to be extricated after they were pinned in a car, Collinstowrth said.
