WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — An SUV wrecked off a Winston-Salem bridge Wednesday evening and hit another vehicle on the highway below, according to Winston-Salem police.

Whitney Williams, 32, was cited for driving while license revoked, expired registration plate and expired inspection.

Police say Williams was driving a 2002 Ford Expedition southbound on North Liberty Street when it began fishtailing and drifted into the opposite lane of travel.

Williams tried to get the vehicle under control but overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to hit the railing on the bridge over U.S. 52. The vehicle went through the railing and crashed down onto the southbound lanes of U.S. 52, hitting a 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350.

Williams and a passenger in Williams’ vehicle, as well as the driver of the Mercedes-Benz, were all taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Southbound U.S. 52 was closed after the crash but has since reopened.
