More Mishaps in March Snowy Blast PDF Print

Snowy weather and icy roads causing travel problems, as caution is being urged across the mountains for anyone traveling.  One wreck just before 8 this morning was on Three Mile Highway in Avery—NC 194—and involved a silver SUV skidding off the highway, landing in a cow pasture. Arriving first responders were told by the driver that he was OK, with medics and most first responders cancelling their response. Boone Fire and Watauga Medics responded to a single-vehicle crash on Little Laurel, a Jeep skidding off the road into a tree.  The driver refused medical treatment, according to Boone Fire at the scene.  And a BREMCO propane truck slid onto its side and wrecked on Oak Ridge Drive off Aho Road near the Blue Ridge Parkway.  No injuries were reported in the 10:15am wreck, but Blowing Rock Fire responded in case of trouble resetting the truck.
