Driver trapped in collision

A man whose name has not been released failed to stop at an intersection this morning and was hit by a tractor-trailer.
The man was traveling in a 2002 Jeep Cherokee at the intersection of Mooresville and Lincolnton roads when he didn’t stop at the stop sign, said Salisbury Police Capt. Sheila Lingle.
The two-vehicle collision occurred at 8 a.m. today where Lincolnton Road crosses over Mooresville Road and becomes Sunset Drive.
“The Jeep ran into the side of the tractor trailer where the fuel tank was,” Lingle said.
The Kenworth tractor- trailer was traveling outside the city when it was struck. The tractor-trailer driver was not injured.
The driver of the Jeep Cherokee was partially ejected and firefighters worked to free him as he was trapped in the vehicle.
He had what appeared to be a minor head injury and was conscious, officials said.
A first responder who happened to be near the scene rendered aid to the SUV driver, Lingle said.
No other injuries were able to be determined at this time.
The driver of the SUV was airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.
