Two accidents—both single-vehicle wrecks landing on their tops—about a half-hour apart, complicated travel on US 321 between Blowing Rock and Boone this morning. The first was near the Aho Road intersection at about 7:50, a woman losing control of her Ford Explorer in a curve, striking the guardrail, flipping over and landing on its top.  Trooper Brown said that the woman had just dropped her children off at school when the accident occurred.  She was not injured in the wreck, according to the trooper.  

The second wreck was just out of Boone approaching Payne Branch Road.  Ice—a very small patch of black ice—may have caused that wreck.  Ronda Reece, 30, of Mountain City hit the icy patch, flipped, and landed upside-down partially on top of the guard rail.  Witnesses helped get Reece out of the truck, and although he seemed to have a neck injury, he refused transport to the hospital.  The DOT was asked to come treat that section of road after the wreck.
