Car pins man at gas station
SALISBURY — A man was taken to the hospital after police said he was pinned between two cars at a Wilco-Hess service station on East Innes Street.
A 67-year-old woman got out of her car without putting it in park when she pulled up behind 61-year-old James Faggart Sr. at gas pump No. 1, 500 East Innes Street, Tuesday morning.
Police said the car began to roll, pinning Faggart between the two vehicles.
Faggart, of Salisbury, was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center by ambulance. Police said he did not appear to have any visible injuries, but was being evaluated Tuesday afternoon.
Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said officers believe the car struck Faggart at less than 5 mph.
“It appears she didn’t put the car in park and it rolled into him,” Capt. Shelia Lingle said.
The driver’s name was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon.
