Cary, NC — Laura Yost was one of three high school students who were injured in an accident with a dump truck in Cary, North Carolina, on Tuesday, September 16, 2014. The accident took place on Highway 55 and McCrimmon Parkway, just half a mile away from the high school they attend.
Yost, along with Ryan Yost and driver Spencer Scoggins were traveling north along 55. Scroggins was making a left turn onto McCrimmon when it was hit on the passenger side by a passing dump truck. Police say that the truck really had no time to hit his brakes. The driver of the dump truck is named Jerry Middleton. Police did not ticket him.
The three students were taken to Duke University Medical Center.
Police are still investigating the accident, but are approaching things with the assumption that it was caused by inattention on the students’ part.
