The second crash was mid morning in Avery County when another vehicle ran off of US 221 near Crossnore. Witnesses said that it appeared the vehicle flipped over, and while traffic was impacted for a time by the wreck, the occupants refused treatment for any injuries.
Then there were two injuries in a Blue Ridge Parkway crash involving a motorcycle. Boone Fire and Watauga Medics responded just before 3pm to the crash in the Deep Gap area near Bamboo Gap, finding two injuries in the crash, but neither said to be serious. The Blue Ridge Parkway Police are investigating that crash.
