BEAUFORT — A motor vehicle collision Thursday afternoon resulted in one driver going to the hospital after his vehicle flipped on its side.

A call went out at 1:33 p.m. Thursday for a traffic collision at the intersection of Campen Road and Live Oak Street. Beaufort police and fire departments arrived on the scene to find a gray Nissan Armada turned on its side from a collision with a gray Chevrolet Traverse.

Joseph Przygodzinski of Beaufort was the driver of the Armada and was traveling with one juvenile passenger, while Cameron Hall of Beaufort was the driver of the Traverse.
