CAROLINA BEACH - Updated Tuesday September 1st -  The Carolina Beach Police Department dealt with two serious vehicle accidents Sunday afternoon. Carolina Beach Interim Police Chief Harry Humphries said the first occurred near the entrance of the Food Lion shopping center on North Lake Park Blvd near Snow's Cut Bridge at around 1PM. Chief Humphries said Danielle Horne of Wilmington, NC, ran a red light at the intersection. Her large black SUV hit a Toyota pickup truck. She was taken to the hospital. The driver of the pickup truck - Mark Page of Wilmington, NC - was taken to the hospital. Chief Humphies said charges will likely be filed against Horne. Those charges had not been filed as of Monday but Humphires said if they are filed they would likely be failure to stop for a red light and failure to reduce speed.
On Monday local attorney Barry Henline posted a message on Facebook stating: "If anyone witnessed the collision yesterday around 1 p.m. in front of the Food Lion in Carolina Beach please contact The Law Offices of Barry K. Henline, PLLC. 910-707-1555. We are attempting to find any and all witnesses. Thank you."
The second more serious incident occurred around 1:30PM in the 1300 block of South Lake Park Blvd when Jeremy Brown of Garner, NC, hit a family of four visiting from New Jersey. The mother and father were walking in the bike lane with their three-year-old son and infant in a dual seat stroller. Chief Humphries said Brown was driving a blue Monte Carlo in the north bound lane. The family was walking in the northbound bike lane. Brown veered off the road into the bike lane and hit the family. Chief Humphries said the mother received the worst injury with a broken tibula. The father was thrown onto the windshield and suffered lacerations to his head. Their three-year-old son was thrown out of the stroller and will have to get stitches in his head. Humphries said the infant suffered some scrapes but was otherwise unharmed.
Chief Humphries said Brown was charged with DWI, possession of marijuana, possession of a prescription narcotic not in his name, possession of paraphernalia, failing to maintain lane of travel and four counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
