Two-vehicle wreck snarls West Innes Street traffic

SALISBURY — A wreck involving an extended cab pickup and hatchback car led to traffic delays Friday afternoon on West Innes Street.

The wreck happened close to 1:45 p.m. at the intersection of West Innes and Jackson streets, near the St. John’s Child Development Center. No one appeared to be seriously injured.

For a while, the 200 block of West Innes Street was closed, and westbound traffic was being detoured onto South Church Street. Later, a single lane of westbound traffic was reopened while Salisbury Police investigated the accident and the vehicles were towed away.

Both the truck and car had extensive damage to their front ends. Traffic signals at West Innes and Jackson streets remained in operation, though the car looked as though it might have run into a signal pole.
