Wreck slows traffic on N.C. 152

Staff report
MOORESVILLE ó A driver wanting to get out of a traffic jam on N.C. 152 near the Iredell-Rowan line ended up in a three-vehicle wreck.
One person was taken to Lake Norman Regional Hospital.
Cars backed up for miles as the road was shut down for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon.
A paving operation on N.C. 152 had backed up traffic. A driver waiting for the pilot car apparently opted to turn around in a driveway and head west toward China Grove.
Trooper D.R. Brackman, with the N.C. Highway Patrol, said Lisa Underwood, 47, of Mooresville pulled her 1998 Honda from a driveway into the path of a 1999 Mitsubshi, driven by Jessica Harris, also of Mooresville.
The vehicles collided with the Harris vehicle, going off the right side and into a ditch.
The Underwood vehicle spun around in the road and collided with a 2000 Mazda pickup driven by Steven Champagne, 42, of Lake Wiley.
Harris was taken to Lake Norman Regional Medical Center and was expected to be released after treatment.
Underwood was cited with failure to yield.
West Rowan firefighters were on the scene for nearly two hours assisting with traffic.
Amidst the traffic jam from the paving and the wreck, firefighters had to deal with half of a doublewide trying to make it through.
“We got half the doublewide through, I don’t know where the other half went,” said Andy Russell, an assistant chief with West Rowan.
