A two-car accident sent two to the hospital with minor injuries Saturday night. In a report filed with the North Wilkesboro Police Department, Kimberly Kennedy of North Wilkesboro reached down to get something in the floorboard of her vehicle, crossed over the centerline of Hwy 421 Business, and collided with another vehicle. The driver and passenger in the second vehicle were transported to Wilkes Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. Kennedy was charged with expired registration and unsafe movement.
Fender benders continue and abound in Wilkesboro this weekend with drivers misjudging distance, misjudging speed, misjudging a block wall, and a hit and run. No injuries were reported in either of these car accidents. Most were simple bump ups with minor property damage. Ironically, someone had their vehicle at Empire Body Shop when they drove over an block wall and got stuck. Damages were an additional 200 dollars. Finally, Wilkesboro Police are looking for a Toyota involved in a hit and run on Business Hwy 421 Saturday afternoon. A North Wilkesboro woman slowed down in the intersection before turning onto North Curtis Bridge Road and was hit from behind. That driver then left the scene. Charges are pending.
