Woman Dies In Rosman Highway Vehicle Accident – Brevard NC


January 12, 2017

A 76-year-old woman, Dorothy Drake, died Tuesday afternoon in a wreck on the Rosman Highway, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

The collision occurred at 3:16 p.m. at the intersection of Rosman Highway and Green Road, forcing the highway to be blocked for an hour-and-a-half, said Sgt. Brent Hipps, with the Highway Patrol.

Hipps said there were three vehicles that were stopped for utility work going on at the highway intersection.

A fourth vehicle driven by Drake failed to reduce speed and struck the rear of the last vehicle stopped, pushing each vehicle into the one in front of it.
