SALISBURY — Three people were taken to the hospital after a Tuesday afternoon collision at the intersection of Shuping Mill Road and Old Beatty Ford Road.
The most serous injury was a broken shoulder suffered by the passenger in one of the vehicles, N.C. Trooper Anthony Carpenter said.
Carpenter said the collision happened when Charles Kluttz, driving a Dodge pickup, tried to make a left-hand turn onto Old Beatty Ford Road and was struck by a red sedan.
Kluttz was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast in Concord, along with the driver of the sedan, Nadine Long, 46, of Rockwell, and Long’s daughter, who suffered the broken shoulder.
Kluttz, 44, of Rockwell, was charged with failure to yield right of way.
The intersection was closed for some time, holding up several school buses.
