105 accident victim is okay, trooper says PDF Print
Wednesday, 05 December 2007 09:53

A Banner Elk woman is expected to recover from an accident that blocked both lanes of traffic on Highway 105 today.

Trooper C. Morgan says Anne Stephens Pike was traveling from Banner Elk near the Baird’s Creek intersection when she lost control of her 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada and ran off the right side of the road into gravel. After overcorrecting, Pike ran off the road again and the vehicle flipped, coming to rest on its top.

Morgan estimates Pike was pinned into the vehicle for approximately 30 minutes before Watauga Rescue, Watauga Medics and Foscoe Fire Department officials were able to extricate her. Pike was wearing a seatbelt and told Morgan she had not been talking on a cell phone. Morgan attributes the accident to inattention on the part of the driver. No drugs or alcohol is suspected. Morgan does not expect charges to be filed. Pike was transported to Watauga Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
