NC chief charged with hitting 2 suspects with car

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) – The police chief in Kernersville has been charged after his patrol car hit two handcuffed suspects sitting beside a road earlier this year.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Police Chief Ken Gamble was charged Tuesday with failure to slow down to avoid a collision.

Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill said police officers have an obligation to obey traffic laws once a chase is over.

Town Manager Curtis Swisher said Gamble would not contest the charge. Swisher said Gamble will have to complete a precision driving course.

Gamble had responded to a call for assistance on July 15 but the two suspects had been arrested by the time he arrived. Gamble was driving about 20 mph when the suspects were hit.

NC woman reported missing killed on Interstate 85

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Authorities in Charlotte say a 76-year-old woman who had been reported missing was struck and killed by a truck while walking in southbound Interstate 85.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Shirley Pharr apparently had wandered about 3 1/2 miles from her home in northwest Charlotte when she was struck by two tractor-trailers early Wednesday morning.

N.C. Highway Patrol troopers say a motorist saw a woman walking northbound in the center southbound lane and went to the next exit to turn around in hopes of helping the woman. By that time, the trucks had struck Pharr, killing her instantly.

The truck drivers told troopers they couldn’t avoid striking the woman. The patrol says no charges will be filed in the case.
