A driver who wrecked his car in Union County south of Marshville Friday morning is being air-lifted to Carolinas Medical Center with potentially life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The accident happened mid-morning on Landsford Road near Camden Road, N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper John Burgin said. The vehicle, possibly a Chevrolet Blazer, ran off the road and hit a tree, he said.
Speed may have been a factor in the accident, Burgin added.
The victim is a man in his early 20s. He was taken to CMC-Union in Monroe and then was going to be taken to CMC in Charlotte for treatment of his injuries, Burgin said.
“It doesn’t look good,” he added.
Troopers were still on the scene of the accident as of late morning Friday.
The accident was on Landsford Road near Camden Road.
