An accident that took three lives last month has
claimed a fourth.
Cheryle Cotter Simon, who was listed in critical condition at
Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital, has died from injuries sustained in
the crash. Her husband, 62-year-old Thomas Cameron Simon, and best friends,
65-year-old George Wesley Wiggins and 63-year-old Mary E. Wiggins, were killed on October 26 when a tractor-trailer crossed the centerline, overturned and
slid into their northbound pickup. The wreck happened 12 miles west of
Wilkesboro as the couples were heading to their Ashe County homes.
