Three injury accidents were reported yesterday across the High Country, but none came with serious injury. The first was a morning crash in the Sugar Grove area, a car running off of Laurel Creek Road near US 321during the morning commute.  Cove Creek First Responders found the car a distance off of the road, saying it had struck two trees, but that the occupants were out of the car and were not seriously hurt.
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.
