One dead in two-car accident on N.C. 801

MOUNT ULLA — A 45-year-old woman died this morning in an two-vehicle wreck near the Rowan-Iredell county line.
According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, a silver Toyota passenger car ran off the road to the right while traveling south on N.C. 801 toward Mooresville. The driver, a 33-year-old woman, overcorrected as she steered the car back onto the roadway, striking a gold Chevrolet HHR station wagon going in the opposite direction.
The Toyota spun around and came to rest facing backwards, with the front driver’s side crumpled in, while the side of the Chevrolet slammed into a tree.
Emergency responders initially said the driver of the Chevrolet was pinned in the vehicle and they were trying to get her out, but she died before they could. Witnesses said the woman was conscious and speaking when rescue crews arrived.
The man, woman and child in the Toyota were taken to CMC-NorthEast with injuries. Witnesses said the woman appeared to have at least one broken leg. The other two didn’t appear to be seriously hurt, they said, but the child was briefly knocked unconscious.
The wreck happened around 7:45 a.m. in the 15000 block of N.C. 801.
No names have been released, because authorities are still trying to contact family members. A Highway Patrol trooper said charges are pending.
