2 Wrecks and Possible Pregnancy Complications Kept Watauga EMS Officials On Their Toes Thursday.

In the span of roughly two hours local emergency officials found themselves in a very unique situation with two accidents and the possibility of pregnancy complications, all occurring within a few hundred yards of each other on Highway 105 in Foscoe.  The not so directly related chain of events started roughly around 4pm when a vehicle rolled down an embankment near the dumpster site in Foscoe. As of 6pm the cause of the first accident was not available.

According to a source with the Watauga County Sheriffs Department, during the first accident Watauga EMS was contacted by a female sitting in traffic advising them that due to possible pregnancy complications she had been advised by her mid-wife to get to Charles A. Cannon, Jr. Memorial Hospital as soon as possible. Foscoe Fire Department also responded to her condition and as of 10pm Thursday night no other information was available.


The second accident occurred when an unoccupied F350 truck rolled out of the parking lot of the Wilco/Hess gas station at the entrance to Seven Devils into a vehicle sitting in traffic on Highway 105. As of 10pm no other information was available about that accident.

Traffic was heavier than normal on Highway 105 due to the Running Of Bear at Grandfather Mountain early Thursday evening.
