Fatal Collision Closes NC150 for Three Hours

NC Highway Patrol

A 38-year-old Sherrills Ford man died in a traffic accident that closed NC150 at Lake Norman Thursday mornng. 

A 2002 Dodge Caravan was traveling east on NC150 on the bridge near Pinnacle Access Area; it crossed the double yellow center line, and sideswiped a westbound 2019 Freightliner tractor-trailer.  The van continued and collided head-on with a westbound 2018 Chevrolet Silverado.  All vehicles came to rest on the bridge, and the roadway was blocked. It remained closed for over three hours as the vehicles were cleared and the Highway Patrol investigated.

The driver of the van, Patrick Loy Little, Jr., 38, of Sherrills Ford, succumbed to his injuries at the scene.  He was not restrained by a seat belt.  The driver of the tractor-trailer, Lesley Stitt, 41, of Charlotte, was not injured.  The driver of the pickup truck, Nelson Vasquez, 40, of Charlotte, received non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by EMS to Atrium Health-Lincoln.

No charges will be filed.  Contributing circumstances to the collision are still under investigation.
