Three slight injuries came in fiery a two-vehicle collision at the US 421 and US 221 intersection just before 7 last night. The wreck occurred as 21-year old Megan Stanfield, an ASU student from Burlington, approached 221 on 421,
but not able to see the light in the thick fog, she slowing to a crawl—just in time to see that a tractor-trailer was still in the intersection, making the turn onto 221. Approaching from behind, 22-year old Alyvia McLean heard the brakes screeching of the car in front, but could not see the Honda Stanfield was driving until it was too late, and McLean’s Toyota slammed into the rear of the Honda and caught fire. Deep Gap firemen put out the car fire in short order, and Watauga Medics dispatched two ambulances to the scene, but all the injured refused treatment. The state patrol cited Alyvia McLean for Careless and Reckless driving in that she admitted traveling some 50 miles per hour through the fog, her car traveling some 180+ feet after the collision.
