LAUREL SPRINGS — A single-vehicle wreck on N.C. 88 between Laurel Springs and Glendale Springs resulted in one injury Thursday, July 25, about 3 p.m.

Shelly Jean Gregory of Nebo was driving a 2000 Honda Odyssey west on N.C. 88 and swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle that crossed the centerline. The Honda departed the roadway to the right and struck an embankment, according to the wreck report by N.C. State Highway Patrol Trooper Denny Parunak.

Gregory was transported to Ashe Memorial Hospital, according to Candace Barker of Ashe Medics. Parunak said that Gregory did not suffer any life-threatening injuries, and alcohol was not a factor. No other passengers were in the vehicle.

Parunak said at the scene that there was no contact between the two vehicles, and no details were provided regarding the oncoming vehicle.

Chief Greg Chatham of Glendale Springs Volunteer Fire Department said that they were first on the scene, followed in no particular order by Laurel Springs Volunteer Fire Department, N.C. Highway Patrol and Ashe Medics.
