Two Charlotte residents were seriously injured in a potentially life-threatening accident when a car ran off the road and struck the side of a building this past weekend.
Apparently a silver SUV was driving and at the time of incident, was at the intersection of Ardery Kell and Rea Road, closer to the Ballantyne side of Charlotte.
There are no details to what actually led to the crash, and alcohol has not been ruled out as a factor. All that is known as of now is that the accident occurred around 10:30 a.m.
Emergency crews arrived on scene just a few minutes later to clear the debris and help the victims. In fact, one of the victims had to be cut from their vehicle with what is commonly referred to as ” the jaws of life.”
Medics arrived on scene thereafter, and took all three injured parties to Carolinas Medical Center, in Dilworth for observation and treatment.
As of right now, the two people in the silver SUV are still in the hospital with, as stated above, potentially life-threatening injuries. The third person was treated for less serious injuries, and sent home the next day.
The roadway was cleared about an hour after the accident occurred. Few details are currently available concerning the accident; yet the investigation and details is still underway and shortly to be released.
