The Friday workplace accident at Maymead’s Highway 105 asphalt plant has claimed the life the owner of Boone Crane.  Charles Ulery Jr., 37, died early Saturday morning at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center of injuries he sustained just before noon Friday.

The Beech Mountain man was critically injured when Kenneth Carroll Jr. of Butler Tennessee was backing an F-250 pickup on the lot and did not see the pedestrian.  Carroll backed over Ulery, causing the 37-year old Beech Mountain man critical injuries, and caused a call for Watauga Medics and Boone Fire.  Medics assessed the serious injuries and immediately requested an air ambulance to transport Ulery to a trauma center, but with the high winds, they were unable to land locally, and he was rushed to Watauga Medical Center.  Baptist AirCare then told local dispatch that they could land at the Morganton-Lenoir Airport, and medics rushed him there.  Trooper Jennings said Ulery died shortly after 2am at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  Charles Ulery was working on a new installation at the Maymead plant when the accident occurred.  No charges have been filed by the state patrol.
