One of two teens in a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Briggs and Sherrills Ford roads Friday night has died. Gregory Lee Terry, 18, of 1540 Oak Breeze Drive, Mount Ulla, died at 3:12 a.m. Saturday, according to Trooper C.M. Agner of the N.C. Highway Patrol. Agner said Terry was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte along with his passenger, 17-year-old Jesse Edmond Teveler of 840 E. Iredell Ave., Mooresville.
Information on Teveler’s condition was not available Saturday night. Terry was traveling north on Briggs Road in a 1997 Saturn at shortly after 9 p.m., the trooper said, when he failed to yield right of way and was broadsided on the driver’s side by a 2009 GMC Schwann’s food delivery truck being driven east on Sherrills Ford Road by Kevin Christopher Blanchard.
Agner said Blanchard, 24, of 4148 Broadstairs Road, Concord, received a scrape on his left arm, but was not taken to a hospital.
It was unclear whether Lee stopped at the stop sign, the trooper said. Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor in the accident, he said, and both drivers and the passenger were wearing seat belts.
Debris was thrown in font of the car, which came to rest on the side of Sherrills Ford Road. Damage to the truck was minimal.
Also responding to the accident were Rowan County EMS, the Locke Fire Department, Rowan County Rescue Squad and the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.Contact Kathy Chaffin at 704-797-4249.
