ROCKINGHAM — Three people were hospitalized, one of them airlifted, following a wreck near Richmond Senior High School on Tuesday.

According to Trooper R.L. Howze with the N.C. State Highway Patrol, the driver of a Chrysler 300, 37-year-old Angela Taylor of Rockingham, sideswiped a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by 21-year-old Terconnes Covington, also of Rockingham, in the southbound lane of U.S. 1 past the stoplight just before 8 a.m.

The Malibu jumped the median and struck a BMW head-on in the northbound lane, he said.

Covington was airlifted to a hospital in Florence, South Carolina, while the driver of the BMW, 58-year-old Sherry Warner, of Rockingham, was taken to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital-Richmond, according to the trooper.

Kayla Moore, 23, who was a passenger in Covington’s vehicle, was also taken to Richmond.

Taylor also had a passenger, a child around the age of 10. Neither were injured, according to Howze.

The trooper cited Taylor for failure to maintain lane control.
