One person was killed and two others were sent to the hospital Friday after a three-vehicle accident near Harrison Road and West Jake Alexander Boulevard.
The accident occurred around noon. No names were available as of Friday.
According to Highway Patrol Sgt. E.T. Suttles, the driver of a Chevrolet Impala was traveling on Jake Alexander Boulevard when she ran into the back of a Dodge pickup.
The driver of the Chevy veered off the left side of the road and hit a Toyota sport utility vehicle head-on.
The woman who was driving “was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital,” Suttles said.
There were no skid marks on the roadway, he said.
“A witness said she was traveling 65 to 70 mph,” Suttles said.
He said it is possible the woman had a medical condition, but that has not been confirmed.
Salisbury Police responded and assisted with traffic control, Locke and Salisbury Fire departments also responded as did Salisbury EMS and Rowan County Rescue Squad.
