Local Car Accidents

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.

(additional)

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.

Stolen Stop Sign

Why did someone steal a stop sign, where did the stop sign come from, and why did they leave it in a driveway?  Sheriff’s Officials are investigating all those questions.  Saturday morning a Moravian Falls resident reported finding the stop sign and post in their driveway.  The DOT was notified, but it has not yet been determined from where the stop sign was stolen.  Last week someone stole a mailbox and post; this week it’s a stop sign and post.  Officials don’t know who is responsible for these thefts, but hopefully, they will….stop.

Exploding Mailbox

Mailbox vandalism has progressed in Wilkes from mail theft and mailbox theft to an exploding mailbox over the weekend in North Wilkesboro.  According to the report filed with the sheriff’s office, a resident of South Brookview Road heard a loud boom around 8 o’clock Friday night.  They later discovered that their mailbox had been destroyed.  Apparently a bag of firecrackers placed inside the box caused the explosion.  That investigation is still underway.

Infant Mortality Down in Wilkes

In 2009, North Carolina’s child death rate decreased to the lowest rate ever recorded, according to the NC Child Fatality Task Force.  The Wilkes County Health Dept has also released the highlights of Wilkes data:

1--The majority of deaths occurred in the first year of life and were due to birth defects and other prenatal conditions.  This reinforces the importance of early prenatal care and risk reduction.  All women of childbearing age should take folic acid daily and begin prenatal care as early as possible.  Women who smoke while pregnant place their babies at risk of being born prematurely, being of low birth weight, developing birth defects, dying of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other conditions. 

2--Wilkes had no deaths from bicycle accidents, fire arms, drowning, falls, homicide or suicide in children under age 17 from 2005 – 2009.

3--Wilkes had no deaths from SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 2009.

Three Thieves Caught & Arrested

Three arrests were made by Sheriff’s Deputies over the weekend after they caught thieves at the scene of the crime.  Deputies responded to a breaking and entering to a drink machine at the Run In on Statesville Highway.  When deputies arrived, they saw someone run from the machine to a car.  Deputies stopped the car and asked the three suspects to step outside the vehicle.  Deputies searched the vehicle and found drink machine parts, coins, dollar bills, and burglary tools.  One suspect initially gave officers a false name.  The three men, Rogelio Garza, Gabriel Jamie, and Houston Vaughn were all arrested and charged with breaking & entering, larceny, damage to property, possession of burglary tools, and providing false information to law enforcement.  All 3 were placed in jail under a 5000 dollar bond.

Operation Stop Arm Begins Today

“Operation Stop Arm” begins today.   Each school day, more than 2,300 drivers violate North Carolina’s school bus stop arm law. To combat this problem the Highway Patrol will be conducting Operation Stop Arm this week: October 18 – 22.  Troopers will be aggressively enforcing stop arm violations and other traffic violations in and around school zones.  The Patrol expects Operation Stop Arm will decrease violations and reduce school bus collisions.    Across the state, troopers will be working school zones and others will be following the buses.  Troopers will be driving marked and unmarked patrol cars during the operation.   Passing a stopped school bus is a Class 2 misdemeanor. If convicted, a person will receive five driving points on their driver’s license and is subject to fines up to $200.
