Winter Weather System Clobbers Area PDF Print

The wintry weather hit hard this morning, and almost instantly there were accidents, a number of them with injuries. Four people were hurt in an 8am rollover wreck on NC 105 near the Avery line, and two ambulances had to be called to that scene while Foscoe Fire/First Responders dealt with the first aid and traffic. Multiple vehicles—including a fireman’s vehicle and a salt truck on NC 194 near the Watauga School offices, with an injury reported in that. All over the High Country, road conditions deteriorated quickly as the mix of mostly snow and sleet arrived.  The Foothills and Piedmont got their dose of wintry mix hours earlier than predicted, and the rash of accidents has followed, Alexander County seeming to have the worst of it.
