Friday Wrecks Snarl US 321 PDF Print

Traffic was snarled at two spots on 321 by wrecks that occurred Friday afternoon within minutes of each other.  Three vehicles were involved in a three-way crash on Blowing Rock Road near Boone Heights Drive, but injuries, if any, were minor. Moments later, a 4 p.m. wreck on U.S. 321 near Aho road sent three people to the hospital and tied up traffic for nearly an hour.
A Toyota turned left out of the Aho Convenience Center and into the path of a Ford Escort, according to Trooper Josh Hodges’s report. Both drivers, 95-year-old Jean Clawson of Blowing Rock in the Toyota, and  20-year-old Caleb Courreges of Conover in the Ford, were hurt, along with the passenger in the Ford, 20-year-old Barak Beam of Dunn.  All three were taken to Watauga Medical Center, but none of the injuries were serious. The Blowing Rock Fire/ Rescue worked to clean debris from the road and direct traffic.
