SALISBURY — A mother and her daughter were hospitalized Monday after a dump truck slammed into their car, pinning them inside.
According to a N.C.State Highway Patrol trooper, Joanne Harkey and her daughter were traveling south on U.S. 52 when she tried to make a U-turn about 1 p.m. Monday and were hit from behind.
The truck crushed the rear half of the light blue Buick Century before the truck toppled off a 15-foot embankment on the road’s right side. The driver of the dump truck was also taken to the hospital.
Harkey is an in-home health care provider for Home Instead Senior Care.
A co-worker of Harkey said Harkey and her daughter were initially taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Harkey was then airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. The co-worker said her daughter was also taken to Winston-Salem but was unaware of which hospital.
A spokesperson for Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center said Joanne Harkey was not in the hospital’s directory.
