A woman was injured as her car struck a Blowing Rock Police SUV, her car flipping, landing on its top. The crash occurred several miles south of Blowing Rock on US 321 at about 11:35 yesterday morning as the Police SUV was stopped to turn left at Pisgah Forest Circle. Trooper C.C. Bentley reported that the north-bound ’98 Saturn of Nancy St. Clair Earls came upon the stopped traffic in the rain and skidded into the SUV, striking near the left rear wheel well, tearing both fenders off the sedan—leaving one lodged inside the SUV wheel well.  The sedan came to rest near the center of US 321 upside down, but injuries to the 37-year old Taylorsville woman were not considered serious, according to trooper Bentley. Officer Angel McAfee was not hurt in the crash that did some $4000 damage to the Blowing Rock Police vehicle, while totaling Earls’ car. Trooper Bentley cited Nancy St. Clair Earls with Failure to Reduce Speed as well as having no liability insurance and her car having a revoked tag. Patterson Fire/First Responders were called along with Caldwell EMS.
