Car flips in wreck on N.C. 801

A Salisbury woman was injured Friday afternoon when she crashed her vehicle along N.C. 801, not far from Hildebrand Road and West Rowan High School.
Jasmine Marie Beck, 25, of the 1100 block of Grandeur Drive, was traveling north on N.C. 801 on Friday just after 2 p.m. when her Chevrolet Impala crossed the center line and then ran off the road to the right. She struck an embankment and the vehicle overturned twice, coming to rest on its top, partially in the northbound lane of N.C. 801, said N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper R.T. Coward. Beck, who was wearing a seatbelt, was pinned in the single-car accident.
Emergency crews were going to fly Beck to a hospital, but they decided instead to take her by ambulance to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Hospital officials said Beck was listed in stable condition.
The contents of the Impala were strewn about the roadside. Among the items were a suitcase with the airport luggage tag still attached, a camcorder, a Texas license plate, magazines and dog treats.
Beck had her dog, a female Pug named Sweet Pea, in the vehicle. The dog apparently had been ejected from the vehicle. Emergency crews on the scene did not know at first if the dog was injured.
Neighbors and emergency crews searched for the dog in a wooded area long the roadside, while the vehicle was being turned back over. The dog was found by neighbors around 5:30 p.m.
Fire Investigator Deborah Horne said the dog wandered onto the porch of a family in the area. The Gray and Koontz families took care of the dog, who is in good condition. They called 911 to report they’d found the dog. Horne took the dog to the apartment complex where Beck lives and the apartment manager is looking after Sweet Pea.
The Highway Patrol investigated the crash and the following emergency personnel also responded to the crash: Cleveland Fire, Locke Fire and West Rowan Fire departments, Rowan County Rescue Squad, Rowan County EMS and Cleveland Police.
Traffic was blocked temporarily from passing through the area. Motorists turned around before getting closer to the crash site. West Rowan High School officials detoured traffic once school ended and students began exiting the parking lot.
