Woman hurt in wreck in serious condition
SALISBURY — Alice Weaver, a passenger in a wreck on N.C. 150 last night who was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, is in serious condition this morning, hospital officials said. Serious condition is one step down from critical.
Driving the car was Weaver’s husband, Wayne, who was dead when responders arrived.
The wreck happened at the intersection of N.C. 150 and Graham Road shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday after a truck t-boned the Weavers’ Honda.
The Weavers either did not see the truck coming down N.C. 150 or ran the stop sign at Graham Road, the N.C. Highway Patrol said. Trooper B.S. Roberts said the investigation is ongoing. He will be interviewing three witnesses this week.
The driver of the truck was not injured and his name has not been released.
Wayne Weaver was a bus driver for Cleveland Elementary School and employed by Rowan-Salisbury Schools for many years.
Cleveland Principal Becky Kepley-Lee rode Weaver’s bus this morning and spoke to the kids about the accident.
The school system’s LINKS team (Learning, Intervention, Nurturing, Knowledge and Student Achievement) is at Cleveland Elementary today to work with students, faculty or staff who may need counseling, RSS Public Information Officer Rita Foil said.
A ConnectEd message will be sent to all parents of children at the school this morning.
