Two SUVs collided head on and seven people in the two cars were injured. The wreck happened around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Huntersville police officers.
"My thought and prayers go out to them. I want them all to recover," said Charles Dunn, who lives in the area.
The crash happened about a mile from the intersection of Gilead and McCoy. Dunn said people often speed down the road, but so far police don't think that's what caused the crash. They're investigating why one of the cars veered into oncoming traffic.
Dunn said the road can make it difficult to drive.
"I'm always alert, especially at night. I've came and people are coming around the corner. I've seen deer in the road as well. I always look twice coming around that curve down the street," he said.
Of the seven people, two have serious injuries. One was flown to Carolinas Medical Center - Main by Med Center Air. The crash was so serious that North Meck Rescues, MEDIC and Huntersville police and fire all responded.
Police have not released the names of the people involved in the crash. They have also not filed any charges.
