Two injured in accident on Old Beatty Ford Road

Two people were injured Tuesday when a Dodge Durango and grey Acura collided at the intersection of Shuping Mill and Old Beatty Ford roads.

The Acura, traveling west on Old Beatty Ford Road, struck the Dodge as it crossed the intersection. The Acura’s driver and passenger were transported to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast in Concord with with non-life-threatening injuries, according to State Trooper A.J. Carpenter.

Rockwell resident and driver of the Durango Kevin Murray, 25 was issued a citation for failing to yield for right of way as a result of the accident, Carpenter said. Murray, who was traveling north on Shuping Mill Road, refused treatment at the scene.

After striking the Durango, the Acura veered off of the road and received significant damage to its front end.

A third vehicle near the scene of the accident also veered off of the road, receiving damage to its front end, but Carpenter said the third vehicle wasn’t related to the auto accident.
