A Catawba County man was killed in an Iredell County crash. Thursday (March 4) at approximately 11:20 p.m., the NC State Highway Patrol responded to a collision on NC 150 at Pinnacle Lane. A 1996 Ford Mustang was traveling south on Pinnacle Lane, failed to stop at the stop sign, and collided with a westbound Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The driver of the Mustang, 58-year-old Ricky Wayne Sessoms, of Sherrills Ford, passed away at the scene. The driver of the F-150, a Mooresville man, was not injured. Based on the preliminary investigation, possible alcohol impairment on the part of the Mustang driver is suspected to be a contributing factor. No charges are expected. The roadway was closed for more than two hours during the on-scene investigation.
