Those involved in Sherrills Ford Road crash identified

A Cleveland man was seriously injured in a Friday night single-vehicle accident at the intersection of Hurley School and Sherrills Ford roads.
Jake Lane, 21, was unresponsive at the scene and his passenger, Alyssa Sides, also 21, had a number of broken bones and was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper A.J. Carpenter said Lane, of the 200 block of Barber Junction Road, was driving a 1993 Ford Ranger, just before 10:50 p.m. when he failed to stop for a stop sign.
He was traveling on Hurley School Road, continued through the intersection and struck a tree head-on. The trooper said Lane was exceeding the posted 45 mph speed limit and was traveling an estimated 60 mph.
Alcohol or other impairment was not a factor in the crash, he said.
Carpenter said Lane and Sides, of the 600 block of Cool Springs Road, Iredell County, were both wearing their seat belt.
Lane was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, however hospital officials there said they could not confirm a listing for Lane as a patient.
Sides had broken ribs, a broken sternum, fractured skull and a concussion.
