Two injured in wreck

Two men were taken to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center after a one-vehicle wreck on Choate Road Sunday afternoon.
According to the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Salisbury resident Michael Shannon Head, 27, was driving a 1990 Nissan with Zachary Alan Rogers, 21, of Rockwell as a passenger when a witness saw the car doing doughnuts on Old Union Church Road.
The vehicle then was said to have passed the witness in a no-passing zone on Choate Road before meeting another vehicle head-on. Head drove off the road to avoid hitting it, and the resulting crash ejected him from the vehicle and pinned Rogers inside, authorities said.
Head was charged with careless and reckless driving and driving while impaired. Results of a blood sample are pending.
According to the highway patrol, Head likely was driving close to 70 miles an hour on the twisting road, where the speed limit would be 55 miles per hour.
Head was listed in fair condition and Rogers was listed in critical condition late Sunday night.
