Car wrecks with tractor-trailer

A Salisbury woman was sent to Rowan Regional Medical Center with very minor injuries this afternoon after N.C. State Troopers and witnesses say she pulled out in front of a tractor-trailer onto Stokes Ferry Road, and was hit.
According to Chris Misenheimer, who was driving his tractor-trailer east on Stokes Ferry Road, the driver of the white Suzuki SUV, Wendy Kluttz, who was stopped at the stop sign at the intersection of Agner Road, pulled out in front of him.
“I wasn’t expecting her to ever attempt to come out,” Misenheimer said.
A witness, Jon Davis, was stopped at the intersection at St. Peters Church Road, and saw everything.
“When her front hit him, the back swung around,” he said.
Davis checked on Kluttz, prying open the door of her SUV to make sure she was okay.
“She said she had a headache,” Davis said. “She got out saying sorry and that it was her fault.”
Kluttz was cited for failure to yield for a stop sign.
Firefighters with the West Liberty Fire Department directed traffic as the front left tire was replaced on the tractor-trailer. Troopers Motsinger and Rogers with the N.C. Highway Patrol investigated. Rowan EMS also responded, taking Kluttz to the hospital.
