Fatal Collision In Watauga County, Wednesday

William Jesse Glenn, 35, is dead


VILAS––A fatal collision occurred Wednesday evening in Vilas.

According to Master Trooper Christopher Casey of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, NCSHP personnel responded at about 8 p.m. and investigated the incident in the rural Watauga County community. The scene was on Reese Road near Wilburn Rominger Road.

“A 2001 Dodge ‘Ram,’ travelling south on Reese Road, drove off the right side of the road and overturned,” Casey states in a related release.

He adds that the driver, William Jesse Glenn, 35, of Sugar Grove, was ejected from the vehicle and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Glenn was not restrained by a seatbelt.

“The initial investigation indicates speed and alcohol were not contributing circumstances in the collision,” Casey continues. “During the on-scene investigation, Reese Road was closed in the area for approximately two hours.”
