Four people were hurt Sunday in a three-car crash in Onslow County.

It happened just before 1 p.m. on Highway 258, west of Jacksonville.

Troopers say Jeri Reichelderfer was at fault; she pulled out from Old Tar Landing Road onto the highway, and hit a Toyota.

The crash pushed the Toyota into oncoming traffic, in front of a Honda SUV.

Everyone involved went to a hospital, but all are expected to be treated and released.

Reichelderfer is charged with failure to yield right of way.
