Boone Man Dead After Ejection From ATV

Carl Scott Norris, 38, dies from injuries in Saturday collision


BOONE––A Boone man is dead, following a collision with a deer on Saturday night.

According to Master Trooper Christopher Casey of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, NCSHP personnel responded at about 11 p.m. to investigate the fatal collision in Watauga County. The scene was on Briarwood Lane, near Big Hill Road.

“A Suzuki four-wheeler was traveling west on Briarwood Lane and struck a deer in the roadway,” Casey informs in a Sunday statement. “This collision caused the driver to lose control and overturn.”

He adds that the driver, Carl Scott Norris, 38, was ejected from the four-wheeler and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Norris was not wearing a helmet.

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