Three people were sent to the hospital with minor injuries following a two-vehicle collision Wednesday afternoon on N.C. 150.

A Locke Fire truck enroute to the scene was involved in a wreck near Dollar General.

Joseph Agambar, 23, of Denton, was driving a Chevrolet truck for High Rock Waterproofing, based in Lexington.

His passenger was Joshua McAmis, 28, also of Denton.

He was traveling east on N.C. 150 when he ran off the road to the right. He came back across the double line and struck a Toyota Highlander heading west, said N.C. State Highway Patrol Trooper C.T. Walker.

The wreck occurred in the 2000 block of Mooresville Road.

Agambar was charged with careless and reckless driving and failure to wear a seatbelt.

The sport utility vehicle was driven by Nell Weddington, 62, of Cleveland. She was the only person in the vehicle.

The SUV struck the passenger’s side of the pickup.

The wreck occurred at 4:15 p.m. Traffic was detoured around Mooresville Road via Rowan Mill Road as vehicles backed up.

No details were available late Wednesday night regarding the Locke fire truck incident. None of the firefighters appeared to be injured. Locke Assistant Fire Chief Bill Kluttz declined to provide information.

The fire truck was in the parking lot of Gospel Light Baptist Church at the corner of Mooresville and Sherills Ford roads.

The trooper said everyone’s injuries were non-life threatening. He said Agambar was alert and oriented at the hospital. All of the people involved in the collision were taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center, where they were treated and released.
