Boone Fire, Watauga Medics and the State Patrol all responded to a noon wreck on US 321 approaching Niley Cook Road. A blue Honda skidded off the highway south-bound and slammed into one utility pole, missing my millimeters the poles of a flashing sign.

Medics were called with the accident reported as involving injury, but driver William Batchelor said he was not hurt.  The 64-year old Blowing Rock man told trooper Townsend that he may have blacked out just before his car left the road.  He was cited for Failure to Maintain Lane Control.

At about the same time, a wreck on NC 105 Extension and 321 took out another pole—this time a light pole on the lot of BB&T.  An auto parts delivery truck hit the pole just off the 105 side of the lot.  No one was injured in that.
