Oct. 18 wreck

The 2016 Chevrolet involved in a wreck Friday, Oct. 18

JEFFERSON — A two-vehicle wreck on N.C. 16 North Friday, Oct. 18 may have sent one car away on a tow truck, but no one was injured in the collision, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

According to NCHP Trooper Danny Parunak, a 2010 Ford truck, driven by Horton Absher of Crumpler, was stopped on the road waiting for vehicles to turn off of the road. A 2016 Chevrolet, driven by Kayla Prater of Fleetwood, was driving north and failed to reduce speed.

Prater’s vehicle collided with the rear end of the Ford before going off of the road’s right side and into a shallow ditch.

Parunak said Prater was issued a citation for failure to reduce speed.
