Fatal crash reported in Sugar Loaf area

A fatal two-car collision was reported at the intersection of Jolly Cemetery Road and Daniels Lumber Road on Friday morning, June 17, in the Sugar Loaf Community.

The crash occurred about 9:12 a.m. Friday, according to Trooper T.C. Hayes of the N.C. State Highway Patrol. A 1994 Toyota Camry driven by Dustin Galloway, age 35 of Conover, was headed east on Jolly Cemetery Road near the Daniels Lumber Road intersection. Galloway had one passenger, Roxanne Mitchell, age 58 of Ona Deal Road, Taylorsville.

As the Galloway car approached the intersection, a 2002 Nissan Maxima, driven by Adam Stephen Warren, age 39 of Taylorsville Manufacturing Road, Taylorsville, ran the stop sign on Daniels Lumber Road while heading north, Hayes said.

The Warren car hit the Galloway vehicle, at an angle, on Galloway’s passenger side.

Roxanne Mitchell died at the scene, said Trooper Hayes. Galloway and Warren did not report any injuries. All three were wearing safety belts, the trooper stated.

The Nissan Maxima caught on fire but Warren was able to escape the flames.

Sugar Loaf, Vashti, and Taylorsville fire departments responded, as did Alexander Rescue Squad, Alexander County EMS, and Alexander County Fire Marshal’s Office. First Sgt. B.T. Owenby assisted Hayes in the incident.

A third motorist told officers that Warren overtook and passed his vehicle on Jolly Cemetery Road with four-way flashers on immediately prior to the crash.

Hayes said that Warren is charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle, driving while license revoked, and failure to stop at a stop sign.

The collision is still under investigation.
