Mo-ped driver in serious condition after crash Sunday on Dunns Mountain Road

A Salisbury man operating a mo-ped Sunday night is in serious condition, Winston-Salem hospital officials said, just two days after he was involved in a single-vehicle crash on Dunns Mountain Road.
The N.C. Highway Patrol said Ulease Washington, 63, of the 100 block of Twin Oaks Road, was intoxicated when the crash occurred around 9:22 p.m., southwest of Fish Pond Road.
Trooper H.T. Sloop said Washington entered a curve, ran off the right side of the road and was thrown from the mo-ped. He was found lying beside the moped, unconscious, but breathing when troopers arrived. It appears Washington was not speeding, but had been drinking. His blood alcohol content is pending blood test results.
Washington was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center by ambulance and later airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He was wearing a state Department of Transportation compliant helmet, Sloop said. It is not clear where the 63-year-old was headed, he said.
He was charged with driving while impaired and failing to maintain lane control.
In addition to the state highway patrol, Granite Quarry-Faith Joint Police Authority and Rowan EMS responded.
