3 injured after car strikes south Charlotte building

More Information


Two people were in the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries and a third was being treated for less serious injuries after a car ran off the road and struck a building in south Charlotte Saturday.

The silver SUV struck the building at the intersection of Ardrey Kell and Rea roads around 10:30 a.m., authorities said.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene minutes later. Charlotte firefighters from nearby Station 32 had to rescue the driver, who was trapped inside of the vehicle.

Medic officials took all three people to Carolinas Medical Center in Dilworth for treatment.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police had cleared the roadway about an hour after the wreck occurred.

Few details about what caused the accident were immediately available. The wreck did not affect business operations at the building, according to a spokesman from the Charlotte Fire Department.
