Tractor Trailer Accident kills 3 PDF Print
Sunday, 28 October 2007 19:00

A tractor-trailer wreck just after 6 p.m. in Wilkes County left three people dead Friday.

62-year-old Thomas Cameron Simon, 65-year-old George Wesley Wiggins and 63-year-old Mary E. Wiggins, all of Ashe County and Sarasota Florida, were killed. Simon’s wife, Cheryle Cotter Simon was taken to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and was listed in critical condition.

Troopers say a tractor-trailer heading south crossed the centerline, overturned and slid into a northbound Chevrolet Avalanche pickup driven by Thomas Simon. The incident happened about 12 miles west of Wilkesboro on N.C. Highway 421.

The tractor-trailer driver, 47-year-old Curtis Isaac Mondy of St. Petersburg, Florida, was treated and released from Baptist Hospital. Mondy was charged with three counts of misdemeanor death by vehicle and one count of reckless driving. He was held on a $6,000 bond. The Wilkes County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
