One person taken to hospital after two-vehicle crash

One person was taken to the hospital this morning following a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of West Kerr and North Fulton streets.

A woman traveling northeast on North Fulton Street in a red Toyota Tacoma pickup failed to stop at a red light there and T-boned a white Chevrolet Silverado heading southeast on West Kerr Street. A woman traveling with her grandson inside the Chevrolet hit a curb, and the pickup overturned on the driver’s side.

The woman, whose name was not immediately available, was temporarily trapped inside the truck. Fire personnel had to cut the roof of the Chevrolet pickup in order to free the driver from the vehicle.

Police officer Matt Benjamin said the driver was alert, but shaken. She was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not serious.

The driver of the Toyota, whose name was not immediately available, was charged with not having an operator’s license and failing to stop at a red light. She was inside the vehicle with her infant daughter. Benjamin said they were either heading to or from a doctor’s office appointment.

Salisbury Fire Battalion Chief Tim Hurlocker said firefighters had to stabilize the vehicle in order remove the driver from the Chevrolet pickup. He said the driver complained of injuries and was taken to the hospital via Rowan EMS.

Rowan County Rescue Squad also responded to the scene.
