Rollover with Fatality
I77 SB at the 41 MM
The call came in that a vehicle had rolled over and that there had been an ejection. Units arriving on the scene found a pickup truck that had rolled and an upside down MG Midget. The male subject was in between the two vehicles. The person was dead from massive head injuries. The SHP, Iredell Co EMS, Troutman Fire & Rescue, Shepherds Fire responded to the call. SHP contacted the Coroner to pronounce the body. Traffic was stopped for nearly 1 hour and then one lane was opened. Upon coming back to Troutman, I spoke with a person at a local garage who stated that the vehicle had come through Troutman earlier and the towed MG was moving across the center line. The wheel was not secured when towed, and may have been the cause of the vehicles fishtailing and then flipping. No official cause has been determined as of this time.
