ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — One person died in a multi-vehicle accident south of Reidsville Friday afternoon, according to Highway Patrol Master Trooper Chris Knox.

The accident happened at 2:10 p.m. on U.S. 29 Business north of Flat Rock Road.

A 2009 Chevrolet HHR traveling north, driven by 71-year-old Paul Jones, of Reidsville, went left of center, hit two other vehicles and collided head-on with a third vehicle, Knox said.

Jones was pronounced dead at the scene.

Valerie Pinnix, of Reidsville, and Phillip Swaney, of Thomasville, who were the drivers of two of the vehicles hit by Jones’ vehicle, were transported to Moses Cone Memorial Hospital in Greensboro with serious injuries, Knox said.

There is no word on what caused Jones to veer into the other vehicles involved in the accident.
