A Salisbury woman was injured Friday afternoon after she crashed her vehicle along N.C. 801, not far from Hildebrand Road and West Rowan High School.

Jasmine Marie Beck, 25, of the 1100 block of Grandeur Drive, was traveling north on N.C. 801 on Friday just after 2 p.m. when her Chevrolet Impala crossed the center line and then ran off the road to the right. She struck an embankment and the vehicle overturned twice, coming to rest on its top, partially in the northbound lane of N.C. 801, said N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper R.T. Coward. Beck, who was wearing a seatbelt, was pinned in in the single-car accident.

Emergency crews were going to fly Beck to a hospital, but decided instead to take her by ambulance to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

She apparently had a small dog in the vehicle that was ejected. Emergency crews on the scene did not know what type of dog was in the car or if the dog was injured, but ask anyone in the area to contact the Rowan County Animal Control if they see the dog. Animal Control can be reached at 704-216-7768. See more in Saturday’s Post.
