TRANSYLVANIA COUNTY, N.C. -

Two people were injured in a single vehicle crash involving a camp van in western North Carolina Monday.

The passenger van carrying eight kids and two counselors crashed on Forest Service Road 475B, also known as Headwaters Road, in the Pisgah National Forest in Transylvania County.

The campers were on their way to a rock climbing trip when the 21-year-old counselor who was driving pulled to the side of the road to let another vehicle pass.  Investigators say the van was too close to the edge of the road and rolled over the side.
