Dozens looked on from a Citgo parking lot in East Spencer Thursday as emergency crews worked to free a crashed Ford Mustang.
Even after several chains and 10 minutes of tugging, the black sports car refused come loose from a utility pole line.
East Spencer Police Officer D.S. Dublin said the Mustang was traveling southeast onto Andrews Street when it clipped the front of a Chevrolet Cavalier about 11:30 a.m.
The impact damaged the front left of the corner of the Mustang and it veered into a nearby power pole.
Amy Beaver, of Salisbury, her 5-year-old, and mother, Renee Shuping were in the small Chevrolet. They were later taken to the hospital by a private vehicle, authorities said. Their injuries were not expected to be life threatening.
Ashley Hansen, of Winston-Salem, and her boyfriend were in the Mustang. The vehicle came to a stop about 9 feet up the support wire. After a few more minutes, a towing service was able to jerk the vehicle free.
Police said Hansen was charged with failure to reduce speed. The couple did not appear to be injured.
The East Spencer Fire Department assisted in the wreck.
