Injuries reported to an Avery woman in a 7:30am wreck today on US 421/321 in Vilas.  A Subaru sedan hydroplaned and flipped over, landing on its top in a ditch, causing the entire upper portion of the vehicle to be invisible to emergency workers arriving on the scene.  A driving rainstorm was underway as first responders and Watauga Medics reached 36-year old Crystal Jones of Elk Park, trapped in her overturned car.  Medics transported Jones to Watauga Medical Center, according to the state patrol.

Avery emergency workers—Green Valley first responders and medics—responded to a head-on crash that occurred at about 8:15 this morning at the Bottom of Three Mile highway, NC 194, at the intersection of Old Three Mile.  Two occupants of a Hyundai were injured—one pinned in—transported to Spruce Pine Hospital. The other driver, 19-year old Joshua Holman of Banner Elk was not hurt, but was cited for exceeding a safe speed. The State Patrol said 27-year old Jeremy Stevens was the driver of the Hyundai, the Burnsville man and his 25-year old female passenger did not have life-threatening injuries from the wreck.

Highway 421 is also blocked in Wilkesboro, a crash in the main business district in front of KFC there.
