Bicyclist Clayton Matthews Injured in Wilkes County NC Hit and Run Collision

A gentleman from Florida named Clayton Matthews was riding his bicycle along NC Highway 16 near the Ashe County line last Friday when he was hit by a driver who then fled the scene.

The driver of the vehicle was apparently towing a trailer and the trailer may have caused the impact with Mr. Matthews.  This fact may be significant because the trailer may have additional insurance coverage that could help Mr. Matthews with his medical bills and other losses.

The driver of the was apprehended by police only because an eyewitness to the collision followed the driver and called 911.   A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed that the driver was transporting significant quantities of illegal drugs.  The driver has been charged with multiple crimes.

Mr. Matthews was seriously injured and ultimately transported to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem for treatment.  We certainly hope that he can recover from his injuries.
