Three hurt in crash on Faith Road

Staff reports
FAITH ó Three people were injured in a two-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon at a Faith intersection notorious for frequent accidents.
Logan Arey was traveling west on Crescent Road in a Jeep Grand Cherokee at just before 2 p.m. when he apparently failed to yield the right of way and stop at a stop sign at the intersection, according to Trooper M.E. Heon of the N.C. Highway Patrol. Arey’s vehicle collided with a black Nissan Titan being driven south on Faith Road by Matthew Hill.
The impact pushed the Jeep into a stop sign and telephone junction box in the front yard of a residence at the corner of Faith and Artz roads, where the Titan also ended up.
Arey, 16, of 9159 Stokes Ferry Road, and his passenger, Chandler Spry, 16, of 6953 Faith Road, were transported by ambulance to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast in Concord. Hill, 21, of 1259 Cottonwood, Rockwell, was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
Spry was listed in critical condition Thursday night, according to a CMC-NorthEast spokesperson. Arey was in good condition, she said.
A spokesperson for Rowan Regional said Hill was released Thursday.
The collision occurred at 5530 Faith Road at the intersection of Faith, Artz and Crescent roads.
Heon said no charges have been filed. “Speed was not a factor,” he said.
Both vehicles were totaled in the collision, he said.
The Rockwell Rural and Rockwell City fire departments responded to the scene along with Rowan Rescue and Rowan EMS.
Kevin Holshouser, assistant chief of the Rockwell Rural Fire Department, said it appeared the Jeep had been hit in the passenger side by the Titan.
Grass and dirt on the driver’s side of the Jeep indicated the vehicle had rolled at least once.
Holshouser said there are frequent wrecks at the intersection, averaging about one a month.
Dot Caskey, who lives at 5485 Faith Road, confirmed the intersection is the site of frequent accidents and she said she believes the intersection needs a traffic light.
She was inside her house Thursday afternoon when she heard three loud booms.
“I could hear glass a’breaking and a’flying’,” Caskey said. “Something like this happens every couple weeks.”
