Three hospitalized after Barger Road wreck

A truck overturned Wednesday evening on Barger Road off Stokes Ferry Road, leaving at least one person critically injured.
According to Liberty Fire Chief Jabin Honeycutt, one young woman and two young men were heading south in a pickup truck just before 7 p.m. when it swerved and overturned.
Two of the three people were thrown out of the truck. Trooper E.B. Perdue said driver Justin Medlin’s seatbelt saved him from serious injury. He was treated and released.
Middle passenger Justin Hill had no seatbelt on and right passenger Brooke Royston had only a shoulder belt.
All three are 18. They were taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center, and Royston was moved to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Hill to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Hill was in critical condition.
Perdue blamed the wreck that left the 1987 Chevrolet on its side on an icy spot. Honeycutt had said earlier there didn’t appear to be ice on the stretch of Barger Road at the crash.
