A woman involved in a three-vehicle accident Wednesday on Jake Alexander Boulevard has been treated and released, hospital officials say. The collision occurred shortly before 4 p.m. not far from Arby’s restaurant.

Molly Jean Vanhoose, 32, of Winding Way, Salisbury, had a medical condition and lost consciousness behind the wheel, authorities say. She was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and has since been released.


Vanhoose was traveling southeast on Jake Alexander Boulevard in a Dodge Durango. Her vehicle straddled the curb and grass before she T-boned a GMC pickup. The pickup was driven by Lloyd Lunsford, 75, of Macon, Ga. His wife, Beverly, was a passenger in the pickup. Hospital officials did not have a record of the couple.

The rear of the GMC came off the ground and the Durango traveled underneath the GMC. The Durango spun around and backed into a Toyota pickup before it came to rest in the opposite lane of travel.

The Toyota pickup was driven by Seth Myrick Floyd, 22, of Ray Bud Road, Norwood.

The Salisbury Police Department investigated the crash. No charges were filed.
