A weekend wreck in which a car hit a mobile home on Snowhill Hill in Mount Airy sent the driver to the hospital, city police say.

The accident happened about 8:30 a.m. Saturday as Deborah Lynn Wolfe, 51, a resident of Belvue Drive, Mount Airy, traveling west on Snowhill Drive in a 2004 Chrysler, was headed up the hilly roadway from the direction of Caudle Drive.

Upon approaching the mobile home, located at 108 Mayport Lane, the car went off the left side of Snowhill Drive and struck the residence.

No serious injuries were caused to Wolfe or anyone at the mobile home, occupied by Elizabeth Faye Freeman, although Wolfe was transported from the scene.

“She was taken to the emergency room and checked out,” Capt. Alan Freeman of the Mount Airy Police Department said Monday.

It was not immediately known if anyone was inside the residence at the time of the collision.

Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $5,000, while the damage to the structure was put at $3,500.

No charges were issued as a result of the accident, Freeman said.
