Watering Trough Rd/Fish Hills Rd
Vehicle into a Mobile Home

 

The driver was coming downhill around a curve and lost control of his pickup truck.  He went across one yard, over a hill, through a fence, and then hit a parked vehicle square in the rear pushing it into the mobile home.  The driver was Hispanic and there was a language barrier about what happened, but he possibly lost the brakes.  The Sheriff Dept & SHP spoke to the driver who advised he had drank 3 beers.  He was put into handcuffs and placed in the rear of a patrol car.  There were no injuries.  Units from Troutman Fire & Rescue, Iredell County EMS, Iredell County Sheriff Dept, and NC SHP were on scene.
