Fatal Wreck in Asheville

On Tuesday, a crash on New Leicester Highway took the life of one man and sent two others to the hospital. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened at about 2:30 p.m., between Oak Hill and Heritage Drive. Apparently, 23-year-old Devon Aaron Forester pulled out of the parking lot of Hot Spot and into the path of a delivery truck. Although the truck driver attempted to avoid the car by swerving, he struck Forester's vehicle. 

Semi Truck Crash on I-26

Early Sunday morning, a crash involving a semi truck sent at least two people to the hospital. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened sometime around 4:30 A.M. in the westbound lanes of I-26, near the Long Shoals Road exit (Exit 37). For currently unknown reasons, an SUV collided with the large commercial truck. Both occupants inside of the SUV had to be taken to Mission Hospital for treatment of injuries. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured in the crash. 

Buncombe County School Bus Safety

On Wednesday, Buncombe County and other counties across North Carolina participated in Stop Arm Violation Count Day. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, bus drivers were asked to pay special attention to any drivers illegally passing school buses while their stop arms were extended. Although it seems obvious, drivers should not be passing stopped school buses where children are loading and unloading. Buncombe County alone averages about 70 violations every day. 

Death at Worksite in Rutherford County

Last Friday, a worker was killed on a worksite in Rutherford County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened sometime around 11:45 a.m. at a Sisk Grading Site. Apparently, the worker, Blake Luckadoo, was somehow thrown from a machine he was running. Very few details have been released, but we do know that a fellow employee found Luckadoo, unresponsive. Luckadoo was pronounced dead on the scene by first responders. 

Teen in Serious Condition After Crash

On Monday evening, a teen was seriously injured in a crash involving a suspected drunk driver in Anderson County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, Breyona Williams had to be air lifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital from the crash scene on Highway 76 in Pendleton. Williams left the Dairy Queen in Pendleton sometime around 8:30 p.m., just before the wreck. She only got a few miles down the road when her car and 52-year-old Ted Arrowood's truck collided. 

Multiple Wrecks on I-40

On Thursday morning, there were multiple wrecks on the same stretch of I-40 in Candler. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, two crashes happened back-to-back just around 10:00 a.m., near mile marker 38. Witness reports indicate that the driver in the initial wreck may have hydroplaned before her car flipped and rolled over multiple times. 

Impaired Driving Studies by NHTSA

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has just issued the results of two drunk driving studies. Apparently, while drunk driving crashes have declined, there has been an increase in drugged driving across the U.S. The NHTSA has been working hard over the past few decades to increase the awareness about the dangers of drunk driving, and it shows. Unfortunately, there has been less of an emphasis on the dangers of drug use behind the wheel.
