The heavy burst of wintery precipitation Thursday afternoon led to a string of accidents across Watauga County.
13 accidents were dispatched out in just one hour, according to Anita Presnell, a dispatcher with Watauga County Communications.
Presnell tells WataugaOnline.com that the number of dispatches due to winter weather was just a little bit more than normal for such a short time frame. She noted the accidents were widespread in the county, which sometimes can result in their own set of demands or challenges.
The three most notable accidents were:
A rollover accident in the area of McGuire Road/321/Bethel Road.
A 20-foot rollover accident down a bank on 221 in Blowing Rock.
