Wreck Generic Version

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Forsyth County deputies say one of their vehicles was involved in a wreck Friday morning outside Winston-Salem.

Lt. Brad Stanley says nobody was seriously injured in the wreck, which happened around 9:15 a.m. in the 5700 block of Gumtree Road near Saw Mill Road.

Trooper Shaw with the N.C. Highway Patrol says a Dodge pickup truck went around a curve too fast when it slid across the center line and struck a car head-on. 

The deputy’s patrol car was behind the car that was struck.  The deputy rear-ended the car because he could not stop in time due to road conditions, Shaw said. 

The driver of the car that was hit was treated at the scene for a minor injury, Shaw said. 

Damage to the deputy’s patrol car was minimal, he added. 

No other details were available.
