Wreck closes road

Firefighters spray down the road after a three-vehicle wreck on N.C. 16 near Mundy Road Monday. The wreck completely blocked N.C. 16. Yua Lo of Conover was stopped in the northbound lane of N.C. 16 waiting for another car to turn left, said state Trooper K.B. Joines. A truck driven by Jackie Lineberger of Denver was stopped behind Lo. A van driven by Eugene Early Jr. of Shelby rear-ended Lineberger’s truck, and pushed it into Lo’s van, Joines said. Lo and three passengers were transported to Catawba Valley Memorial Hospital, and Lineberger was also expected to go. Early has been charged with failure to reduce speed, Joines said.
