NEW BERN -

A wreck on Martin Luther King Boulevard on Tuesday flipped a pickup truck and closed the entrance to a shopping complex.

The two-car crash happened on Highway 17 in front of the entrance to the Walmart in New Bern. Right now the entrance to River Town Square is closed.

Two Coast Guardsman were driving brand new Coast Guard truck to the Outer Banks; that's when police said they ran the red light in front of WalMart hitting another truck. The other driver was headed from the Twin Rivers Mall across into Walmart when he was broadsided in his Ford pickup. The pickup was flipped upside down.

There is no word on any injuries as of yet, but an ambulance was seen leaving the scene.
