Driver Runs Intersection, Hits Another Car

It's commonly accepted that having a police officer direct traffic when a signal light is out improves safety at the intersection. It is also a hazardous time for the officer, though, when drivers don't pay attention. An officer says it's unclear whether the driver that didn't follow his direction Wednesday at US 421 and Highway 16 knew he was there directing traffic. The driver, 29-year old Wesley Hansen of Huntersville, North Carolina, went through the intersection on 421 and slammed into the side of a car turning left, which was driven by Robert Holman of Millers Creek. Both drivers, who were alone in their vehicles, refused treatment. A determination has not been made on whether a ticket will be issued in connection with the wreck.

Restaurant Accused of Adding Tip to Check Without Permission

A Wilkes woman accuses a local restaurant of adding a tip to her meal when she'd already left one on the table. Wilkesboro police were called to the Chile Verde restaurant around mid-day Wednesday when both parties decided it would be best to get the police involved. Tammy Shepherd of Millers Creek said she had bought lunch on an earlier date, which a receipt showed costing a bit over 8-dollars. But her bank statement showed the card had been debited for exactly 2-dollars too much. Shepherd says she left a cash tip on the table. Shepherd tells 3WC News that when she confronted the staff they initially were not going to refund the extra money, but they eventually did so at the "encouragement" of police. They tried to give her a coupon for a future visit, which she refused. She tells police this is the second time it has happened to her at Chile Verde. The case is listed as under investigation.

Margaret Johnson Arrested While Eating Lunch in North WIlkesboro

Wilkes County authorities have arrested a woman in connection with the 2002 slaying of a man who disappeared from a location on Cicero Road. Acting on a tip, they arrested Margaret Johnson's at a North Wilkesboro restaurant yesterday afternoon. Her husband, Robert, was arrested on Monday. The two have been charged with murder in the disappearance of Kenneth Ray Miller. Authorities say Margaret Johnson was arrested at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday at a restaurant on West D Street in North Wilkesboro. The sheriff's department received a tip that she was there eating lunch. Two undercover detectives were sent in to identify her and arrested her.
Margaret Johnson was the ex-wife of Miller. Miller's remains may have been recovered earlier this week. Authorities unearthed remains on Monday that they are testing to verify whether they are Miller.

Wilkesboro Wreck Injures One

An apparent street racing incident led to one person being injured in a crash on US 421 in Wilkesboro Monday night. Wilkesboro Police say there were several people in 19-year old Christopher Lee Foster's car; one of the passengers, Christopher Todd Collins, was taken by ambulance to Wilkes regional Medical Center. According to the wreck report, Foster and another vehicle were traveling east on 421 near Winkler Mill when the other driver tapped his brakes. Foster says he tried to whip the car to the right to avoid hitting the other driver. He over-corrected, sending the car into a skid and across the median, where it overturned, coming to rest on its top. Foster was ticketed for reckless driving and for not having a current inspection sticker; the other driver left the scene and has not been identified.

Man Accused of Purposely Hitting Scooter Rider with Car Mirror

A Wilkes teen says he was knocked unconscious and suffered multiple injuries when a man sideswiped him with a car mirror as he was riding his scooter on Mulberry Pine Road. 17-year old Jimmy Taylor says the event early yesterday morning was not an accident, either. He tells deputies he rode up to the Fairplains BP station about 1:20am yesterday. While he was there, he got into a verbal disagreement with an unidentified man, who had called him a derogatory name. Taylor says the man eventually got back in his car and left the store. However, as Taylor was riding home, the car appeared out of nowhere and sideswiped him, knocking him off the scooter with the passenger-side mirror. After he woke up and dusted himself off, Taylor called 9-1-1. He had a number of cuts and scratches. While he wasn't able to give deputies a name of the man who was driving, he gave a detailed description of both the man and the car. The investigation continues.
