BURLINGTON, N.C. — A man and two children in a truck were injured after police said the man ran a stop sign in Burlington and was hit by another vehicle.

It happened at about 7 a.m. Thursday as Kevon Tramine Taylor went through a stop sign at North Main and Ireland Street while headed north, according to police.

Police said Taylor’s 2000 Ford Ranger was hit by a 2007 Cadillac Escalade and the Ranger overturned.

Firefighters contained a small gas leak from the truck. The intersection was shut down for just over an hour.

Taylor was cited for running the stop sign and improper child restraint.
