An accident on Third Street in front of the Sampson-Livermore library and McDonald’s caused the damage on the car above.

According to responding Officer Bobby Freeman of the Pembroke Police Department, the driver was attempting to turn into the parking lot when her car was rear ended.
           
There was traffic congestion at the time, the officer said. 
           
Freeman stated this was the second accident of the day in front of McDonald’s.
           
Freeman said that he hopes students will become more aware of the traffic and their speed in front of the University because of the number of accidents occurring on Third Street. 
           
“Be aware of the traffic and your speed,” Freeman said. 
           
“A lot of it has to do with speed, not just being aware of your surroundings,”   continued Freeman.
