Car Crashes Into Business

A vehicle crashed into a building earlier this week. On Wednesday (September 13) at approximately 9:30 a.m., the Statesville Police Department responded to a 911 call reporting a motor vehicle accident involving a building. The incident occurred at Verizon at 1025 Glenway Drive.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers discovered that a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze had collided with the Verizon building. The vehicle was being driven by an 81-year-old female, with an 85-year-old male passenger.

Both the driver and passenger informed emergency personnel on the scene that they had not sustained any injuries as a result of the accident. However, a Verizon employee who was present near the point of impact was transported to the Iredell Memorial Hospital’s emergency room due to minor injuries. The employee was not directly struck by the vehicle, but sustained injuries caused by flying debris resulting from the collision.
