Old Mountain Road
Car vs. telephone pole
A car occupied by a mother and her two children were southbound on Old Mountain Rd. The mother turned around to see what was happening in the back seat and ran off the road striking a culvert before hitting a telephone. The children were in child seats and were not injured. The mother had a head wound and all were out of the vehicle when emergency vehicles arrived. There were lines down on the vehicle. Power companies were called in and a new pole was ordered. Units from West Iredell Fire Dept., Troutman Fire & Rescue, Iredell Rescue, and Iredell County EMS responded to the scene.
