GRANITE QUARRY — At least one person was taken to the hospital following a three-vehicle collision Monday afternoon at the intersection of South Salisbury Avenue and Dunns Mountain Road.
The driver of a tractor-trailer, which was heading north on South Salisbury Avenue, T-boned the driver of a Honda Civic that turned in the path of the large truck, said Officer Matt Milette of the Granite Quarry-Faith Police Authority.
The driver of the Honda, whose name was not available, was on Dunns Mountain Road attempting to turn left when the collision occurred, Milette said.
The driver of the Honda Civic then spun and hit a Saturn Vue in the front. The Saturn came to rest beside the tractor-trailer.
The driver of the Honda was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center. The driver of the truck and Saturn were not injured and remained on the scene until their vehicles were towed.
The Granite Quarry-Faith Police Authority is continuing to investigate.
Milette said neither speed nor the weather were factors in this incident.
The driver just didn’t see the tractor-trailer, he said.
Names of those involved were not available Monday.
