Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory was involved in a lunchtime accident with another vehicle in downtown Salisbury today.
It was a minor fender bender before McCrory headed to Winston-Salem for a campaign speech, according to a campaign spokesperson.
He was not injured and is doing fine, the spokesperson said.
The mayor was speaking at the event, which started at 1:30 p.m.
McCrory was a passenger in a Honda Accord, according to Salisbury Police Chief Mark Wilhelm.
The accident occurred at 12:04 p.m. The vehicle was traveling north in the 100 block of S. Main Street, when the driver, whose name was not available, made a U-turn attempting to pull into a parking space heading south.
A campaign spokesperson confirmed McCrory was not driving but was riding with a campaign staff person.
The driver did not make the turn and backed up.
It is unclear whether the Hondaís driver struck an oncoming Chevrolet sport utility vehicle or the SUV struck the Honda.
No charges were filed, Wilhelm said.
