A two-vehicle wreck at the intersection of Newland Highway and Old Highway 181 in Montezuma sent four to the hospital and caused traffic to slow-down in both directions on Tuesday, Dec. 3. N.C. Highway Patrol directed traffic around the wreck.
Ronald Buchanan of Newland and Trevor Shields of Newland
collided when Shields attempted to make a left-hand turn and Buchanan went left
of center in an attempt to pass. Buchanan’s 2001 Chevrolet compact vehicle
collided with Shields’ 1997 Dodge truck, overturned and came to rest on the
left side of Newland Highway. Buchanan and three passengers were transported to
Cannon Memorial Hospital by Avery EMS. Shields and one passenger did not
require emergency medical assistance. Both vehicles were towed on flatbed
trucks from the scene.
