A 59-year-old Mooresville woman was airlifted to the Carolinas Medical Center Main Campus in Charlotte on Wednesday after a wreck near the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
At approximately 2:15 on Wednesday, Valerie Canup Williams was traveling at about 45 miles per hour west on Morehead Street when her Toyota crossed the center lane and collided with an Allied Waste Services refuse hauler, according to an incident report. The truck was traveling at about 15 miles per hour when it was struck by Williams’ car. The collision caused Williams’ vehicle to travel another 35 feet after impact.
Williams was trapped in her car, and medical workers had to remove her from the vehicle. The driver of the truck suffered no injuries from the crash. The collision caused $15,000 worth of damage to the truck and $9,000 to Williams’ Toyota. Williams, who remains at the Carolinas Medical Center, is said to be in ‘fair’ condition, according to hospital staff.
