We deeply understand the profound impacts these accidents can have on so many families and loved ones.
Three people have been injured as a result of a crash on Wednesday, September 13th. The crash occurred just after 9:30 a.m. on the Salisbury Highway outside of the Dollar General between Oak Grove Road and Dellwood Drive, according to the Statesville Police Department.
Officers say a tan 2015 Chevrolet 3500 Silverado was traveling west on Salisbury Highway and a white 2013 Ford F550 dump truck was traveling east on Salisbury Highway. The pickup truck attempted to turn left into the Dollar General parking lot and was struck by the dump truck. The driver of the dump truck, Leyvi Hernandez, attempted to avoid the crash but was unsuccessful. The impact of the crash caused the dump truck to collide with a nearby power pole, which then fell over and landed on top of the vehicle.
The pickup truck was driven by Stephanie Cruz. She spun across the highway and landed in a wooded area north of the highway. Authorities say they had to pull both Cruz and Hernandez from their vehicles. Both drivers were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital with serious injuries but are now in stable condition. A passenger in the dump truck, Fransico Hernandez, was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, We extend our prayers to Leyvi, Stephanie, and Fransico and wish them a healthy recovery. We share our condolences for this devastating car accident that resulted in multiple injuries.
