SALISBURY — A driver traveling the wrong way on a one-way city side street set off a chain-reaction wreck early Tuesday afternoon at South Jackson and West Horah streets.
A woman passenger in one of the cars, Amy Berkshire, 52, of Salisbury, was injured and taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
Salisbury Police Officer M.P. Benjamin said a silver 2002 Pontiac Grand Am was heading south on South Jackson Street, which was the wrong way for the one-way street.
The Grand Am’s driver, Marissa Faulkner, 21, of Badin, proceeded into the intersection at West Horah Street and struck a 2011 Ford Taurus, driven by Stanley Berkshire, 67, of Salisbury.
The Taurus was going west on Horah.
The collision of the Pontiac and Taurus rolled into a third car, a silver 2005 Honda Accord, which was traveling east on Horah and preparing to make a legal left turn onto South Jackson Street, Benjamin reported.
Amy Berkshire, a front-seat passenger in the Taurus, was extricated from the vehicle, placed on a stretcher and taken to the hospital by Rowan County EMS. No other injuries were reported.
Benjamin cited Faulkner, the driver of the Pontiac, with traveling the wrong direction on a one-way street. He said he thought she was unfamiliar with Salisbury streets.
Angela Koontz, 42, was driving the Honda Accord.
