SALISBURY, N.C.  — Police in Salisbury are trying to determine the source of a power surge which may be to blame for a traffic accident that killed a Denton man.

The Salisbury Post reports that 46-year-old William H. Robins, was thrown from his van and pinned underneath as it flipped on its side. Robins’ two sons were in the van and were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities say the van collided with a car driven by Stephen Burrow, who was also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Salisbury Police Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said a power surge early Monday morning caused the traffic lights at the intersection where the wreck occurred to begin flashing yellow. The lights were flashing yellow for both vehicles.
