MADISON, N.C. — A head-on collision caused by black ice left one driver pinned inside a pick-up truck early Wednesday morning.
The crash happened at the corner of Ellisboro Road and Lakefield Road around 12:20 am. Emergency crews had to cut the driver of an S-10 pick-up truck.
“He was pinned inside the car,” said Lt. Roy Stewart of the Madison Rescue Squad. “The dash had come down on him, the doors was invaded on him. He had no way out.”
Stewart said the road was completely covered in ice.
“I’m not sure which one lost control first, but they lost control on the ice and both of them hit, head-on,” Stewart said.
Luckily no one was seriously hurt, but it’s an outcome driving instructors like Randy Wiles says doesn’t always happen.
“You can’t see it, that’s the danger,” Wiles said, who owns Wiles Driving School in Winston Salem.
