A man was airlifted to the Johnson City Medical Center after being injured in a basketball game at Green Valley School late yesterday afternoon.  Reports to 9-1-1 said the man tripped over another player’s leg and hit face-first on the court, causing him to lose consciousness just before 4pm. At first, WINGS Air Rescue reported they were unable to fly due to the approaching storms, but then found a path through the weather to the school, and transported the man, who had regained consciousness as Watauga Medics arrived.
A woman was injured in a motorcycle crash Saturday afternoon near Blowing Rock. The crash occurred about 5 miles southwest of Blowing Rock on US 221 as a woman was thrown off the motorcycle as it crashed near Yonahlassee Road. Watauga Medics rushed to the scene of the 4pm crash to transport  the woman to Watauga Medical Center, and the State Patrol is investigating.
