Two people were sent to the hospital Saturday evening following a wreck where a mo-ped and car collided.
Timothy Wayne Thompson, 31, of 425 Best St., Salisbury, was driving his “Cool Sport” mo-ped around 7:05 p.m. on Institute Street behind a 2003 Toyota Camry driven by Willie Whitaker, 58, of 1333 Hillsborough St., Salisbury.
Whitaker’s wife, Glen, 56, was a pasenger in the car.
According to Salisbury Master Police Officer J.P. Miller, Whitaker was traveling northeast on Institute Street when he turned right onto Bank Street. Thompson ran into the passenger’s side door of the Camry.
Thompson’s helmet flew off as he was thrown from his mo-ped. He was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
Miller said the mo-ped driver had head injuries, but he was in stable condition. Thompson was conscious at the scene.
Glen Whitaker received cuts and scratches to her face from broken glass. She was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Willie Whitaker was not injured.
The investigation continues.
