Teenager Dies in Wreck on N.C. 211
A Troy teenager died Monday evening in a two-vehicle wreck on N.C. 211 that also left three other people injured.
According to the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Austin Patrick Williams,18, died after a car being driven by his sister slid sideways into the path of a van at approximately 6:08 p.m. The road was closed to traffic for about an hour as rescue personnel worked to remove the victims from their vehicles.
Williams was in the front passenger seat of a 2005 Mitsubishi driven by Katie Alison Parsons, 21, of Troy. Parson was traveling east on N.C. 211, while Timothy Roger Pack of Asheboro was driving a 2006 van westbound. The two vehicles collided approximately 2/10ths of a mile west of the traffic light at the entrance to West Pine Middle School, according to 1st Sgt. T.D. Simmons with the Highway Patrol.
A witness in a car behind Parsons said that Parsons' car went to the right then veered to the left, according to Simmons. Her car went sideways into the westbound lane where it collided with the van driven by Pack. The two vehicles ended up toward the shoulder of the westbound lane, according to Simmons.
Nicole Marie Freeman, 16, of Troy was a passenger in the back seat of Parsons' car. All four victims were transported to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. Parsons was in critical condition, while Freeman was listed in good condition. Pack was treated and released from the hospital.
At this point no charges have been filed, Simmons said.
