Fence Damaged by Speeding Vehicle
Thursday, September 6, 2007 at 3:51PM

Wilkesboro police believe a speeding driver is responsible for significant damage to a gate outside a local business. They were called to The Welding Company about 5:30 this morning after the damage was discovered. The officer's report indicates he believes a vehicle hit the fence after trying to round the curve on Old 421, and went straight through the gate instead. There was a set of tire marks behind the fence where it appeared the vehicle had U-turned following the accident. Police say they have no other information on the situation at this time, and ask anyone who may have seen a speeding vehicle in that area a while before sunrise this morning to give them a call.
