A Nov. 29 two-car accident in which one of the drivers was trapped inside his vehicle remains under investigation, said Detective Sgt. Brad Saintsing with the Thomasville Police Department.

According to a press release, the accident occurred at the intersection of Winston Street and Arlington Avenue about 3:22 p.m.

A 1997 Chevrolet Blazer had overturned and Jerry Davis, 49, of 104 Midway Lane, was trapped inside. Emergency cress worked for about 20 minutes to extricate Davis, who was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with serious injuries.

Police said the preliminary investigation indicates the 1997 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Davis was traveling south on Winston Street when a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta, operated by 16-year-old Jennifer Tellez, was traveling west on Arlington Avenue and ran the stop sign at Winston Street.

The Volkswagen Jetta struck the Chevrolet Blazer and caused it to rollover.

A passenger in the Chevrolet Blazer, Teresa Davis (wife of Jerry Davis), was not injured. The Volkswagen Jetta had two passengers at the time of the collision — Kathrine Thomas, 41, who was transported to Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center with minor injuries and a 7-year-old, who was not injured.

Jennifer Tellez has been charged with running a stop sign and no operator’s license. The investigation is continuing and additional charges are pending. However, as of Monday, no additional charges had been filed.
