A Salisbury man is in good condition after authorities say he struck two telephone poles and flipped his vehicle New Year’s Day along Statesville Boulevard.
John Chriscoe, 40, of Wellington Hills Circle, Salisbury, was driving his silver Cadillac just before 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1 when a witness said he saw the car pull out from Brenner Avenue and drive on the wrong side of the road for several blocks.
The witness then said the driver of the vehicle crossed back onto the right side of Statesville Boulevard. The vehicle eventually ran off the road and struck two telephone poles, splitting them in half. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its roof. The driver was pinned inside the car. Emergency crews rescued Chriscoe from the vehicle.
A Salisbury Police officer detected the odor of alcohol on the driver and discovered beer cans lying around the vehicle as well as inside the car. Chriscoe was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
The Salisbury Police have issued warrants for driving while impaired, driving while license suspended, careless and reckless driving and open container.
He remains at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, hospital officials said Monday morning.
