SALISBURY, N.C. - A man was killed in a crash in Salisbury on Monday morning, officials said.

The accident happened around 6:40 a.m. at the intersection of E. Innes Street and Jake Alexander Boulevard and involved two vehicles, police said.

The driver of a van involved in the accident was killed, police said. Two passengers in the van and the driver of the other vehicle involved were taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Their injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, police said.
