SALISBURY — A Salisbury man died from injuries after his car hit a house Thursday afternoon on Camp Road.
Curtis Brinkley, 46, was turning onto Camp Road from the N.C. Department of Transportation parking lot across from the maintenance yard, just after 2 p.m.
The car, a 2-door Ford Aspire, traveled across the road and ran into a home at 165 Camp Road.
No other vehicles were involved, and it was unclear what caused the accident. The N.C. State Highway Patrol is investigating.
Trooper J.P. Page said Brinkley, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
“He had severe head trauma,” Page said at the scene.
Page said the impact of the crash moved the mobile home about 6 inches off its foundation.
The homeowner was at home at the time, but was not injured.
“A building inspector deemed the house unlivable,” Page said.
The helicopter landed at the Rowan County Airport and took the man to Baptist.
