FOSCOE, NC. – According to an online news report posted at wataugademocrat.com, a woman and a child were injured in a three-vehicle crash in Foscoe, North Carolina. No one else involved in the accident was injured, and responding officials said the woman and child’s injuries were not life-threatening.*
The crash happened in the late morning on April 11 on North Carolina Highway 105 in Foscoe. At approximately 10:50 a.m., a dump truck was waiting to turn left in a southbound lane of N.C. 105, and a Subaru Crosstrek was stopped behind the dump truck, waiting for it to turn.
A Ford Escape traveling south failed to slow down in time and crashed into the back of the Subaru. The force of the impact sent the Subaru into a northbound lane of the roadway, where it crashed into the driver’s side of a northbound Buick Enclave. It is not yet clear why the driver of the Ford did not slow in time to avoid a rear-end crash.
A woman and a child inside of the Subaru were injured in the wreck, according to the Watauga Democrat and North Carolina Highway Patrol, and emergency crews took them to a nearby hospital for treatment. The news report describes their injuries as non-life threatening. The report says that no one else was injured in the collision.
North Carolina Highway Patrol, the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office, the Foscoe Volunteer Fire Department, and the Boone Fire Department responded to the scene. Crews shut down all of N.C. 105 South for close to an hour. North Carolina Highway Patrol Troopers reported that citations are pending.
