Drunk Driver Hits Tiny Home

On Saturday evening, a drunk driver in Alexander struck a tiny home off of Old Highway 20. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the crash destroyed the small house. Thankfully, nobody was in the house at the time of the wreck, and there were no major injuries reported. Although the driver involved said he swerved to miss an oncoming car, a neighbor's security camera caught the wreck on film. The footage showed that there was no oncoming car, and that the driver erratically swerved into the tiny house.

Multiple Motorcycle Crashes

On Friday night, a motorcycle crash in Woodfin sent two people to the hospital.

Dangers of Low Quality Auto Parts

WLOS ABC News Channel 13 recently reported on the relationship between some auto body shops and insurance companies in North Carolina. The report found that some auto body collision shops across the state have used untested and unregulated parts to fix vehicles, especially when insurance companies refer cars for work. Motorists trust recommendations from their insurance companies on auto body shops. Unfortunately in many cases, these shops are using inferior parts to pass the savings onto the insurance companies.

Local residents have also been stocking up on shovels and ice melting supplies for their own driveways, sidewalks and walkways.

Distracted Driving: Need to Know

It's no secret that distracted driving has become a nationwide epidemic. Texting has become synonymous with distracted driving, but it's important to note that texting isn't the only type of distraction that can occur behind the wheel. Any task that takes your visual, manual or cognitive attention away from the road is a distraction. This can even include talking to additional passengers in the car. Drivers should also note that hands-free devices offer a false sense of security and haven't been shown to be substantially safer than handheld devices. Listed below are some common forms of distracted driving
