R-Anell President Dennis Jones is expected to make a full recovery after a motorcycle accident on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Jones, a resident of Mooresville, was traveling east on Mombo Road in Iredell County when the accident occurred at 2:25 p.m.
According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, speed was the cause of the crash. Jones ran off to the right into a curve.
He was traveling 55 miles an hour in a 45 mph zone, officials said. He appeared to have missed the curve, crossed a small ditch, slid down on his side into a yard and overturned several times.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Jones was taken to Carolinaâ€™s Medical Center for treatment of injuries which included head trauma, a broken leg and a burned hand, according to Andy Miller, general manager of R-Anell Homes.
â€œHe has made excellent progress and has been moved from the hospitalâ€™s intensive care unit to Progressive Care,â€ Miller said.
There is no indication as to when Jones will return to work.
R-Anell Homes is a privately owned company with 350 employees. The company operates two manufacturing facilities in Denver and Cherryville, North Carolina.
