One-vehicle crash sends Salisbury man to Carolinas Medical Center

A Salisbury man was in fair condition at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte Monday night after a one-vehicle crash on U.S. 601.
Tajarvis-Lee Rifrunzio Little, 32, of 612 Hawkinstown Road was driving south just after 7:30 p.m. Monday, said Trooper C.M. Agner of the N.C. Highway Patrol.
Near the intersection of Young Road, the 2000 Ford Contour that Little was driving swerved off the road, Agner said.
“He came out of the curve and ran off the road to the right,” Agner said.
Little then overcorrected, and the car went off the right side of the road again before it rolled and landed upside down, he said.
“The driver was pinned in,” Agner said.
Rescue workers used the Jaws of Life to get Little out. He was transported by ambulance to Rowan Regional Medical Center and he was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
Little remained conscious at the scene of the crash, Agner said.
Agner said speed was a factor in the accident, although he did not know how fast Little was going. The speed limit is 45 mph.Alcohol was not a factor, Agner said.
Franklin and Ellis fire departments responded, as did Rowan EMS.
