Car hits corner of house; driver not seriously hurt

SALISBURY — A four-door Mitsubishi veered off the road at Jacobs Drive and Nestlewood Lane Monday afternoon, and before it came to rest, the vehicle struck the corner of a house and also damaged the property’s side fence.

The driver, not immediately identified, lives further down Nestlewood Lane, and he told a neighbor who called for emergency responders that he was returning home after purchasing chicken at Bojangles.

A Rowan County EMS unit took the man to the hospital, but he was not believed to be seriously hurt. There was significant damage to the left front corner of the brick ranch house the car hit.

When the Mitsubishi left the street, it first went into the corner home’s driveway before veering through the front yard. After it struck the house, it continued left through a side chain-link fence and came to rest in a neighboring front lawn.

The driver’s side airbag deployed.

The State Highway Patrol is investigating. Franklin and Salisbury fire departments responded.

Jacobs Drive is located off U.S. 601 not far from the end of Jake Alexander Boulevard.
