Staff Report

PILOT MOUNTAIN — Two men were thrown from their vehicle in a single-car accident northwest of Pilot Mountain Wednesday night.

John Shelton, Surry County emergency services director, said the Highway Patrol was still investigating the cause of the accident late Wednesday on Old U.S. 52 between Pilot Mountain and Holly Springs, near Simmons Grove Church Road.

What Shelton knew at that time was that a call came in at 8:04 p.m. about a wreck. The car appeared to have flipped over multiple times.

Two men, who didn’t look to have been wearing seatbelts, were thrown from the car. The Highway Patrol hasn’t released the identities of the two men. Shelton said one man was 31 years old, and the other appeared to be in his mid-30s.

Both men were in critical condition on the scene. EMS transported the two to the trauma center at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. By 9:15 p.m. Shelton said the men had been stabilized.
