DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — One woman is dead and an adult and five children are injured after a head-on crash in Davidson County Friday morning.
The wreck happened just before 8 a.m. near 3179 Cunningham Road near Thomasville.
Troopers say the Ford Explorer was traveling north on Cunningham Road when it crossed the center line and hit another vehicle head on. The rainy weather and the Ford Explorer’s balding tires likely contributed to the accident.
Misty Price, 28, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt was driving the Ford Explorer and died from her injuries, troopers say. Her four kids, ages 3 months to 11 years old were in the car with her. They were taken to Brenner’s Hospital and are expected to be OK.
The other vehicle was being driven by 29-year-old Jennifer Lewis. She is being treated at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. Her juvenile child, who was also in the car, was treated and released.
The roads were slick and at least one of the vehicles had balding tires, according to troopers. An official cause of the crash has not been released.
The intersection of Mt. Zion Church Road and Cunningham Road had been blocked, but has since reopened.
