Police say a motorist died and a second person was injured in a collision involving a deer in the Julian area on Friday night.
According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, 31-year-old Julian resident Jonathan Garrett was operating a Ford Ranger pickup truck south along Mount Hope Church Road around 9:05 p.m. Meanwhile, 40-year-old McLeansville resident Mary Scott was driving a minivan when she came upon a deer in the roadway.
Ms. Scott was unable to avoid a collision and the impact sent the animal flying into Mr. Garrett’s pickup truck. Investigators say it smashed through the front window, causing him to lose control.
The pickup left the roadway and stuck a tree, killing Mr. Garrett. Paramedics transported his passenger, 30-year-old Bridget Clapp, to Moses Cone Hospital for treatment of critical injuries.
Seeing a copy of the North Carolina accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.

If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An North Carolina accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
