03/16/10 197 W, 1 I - + 5 - 3 Strange Accidents

We started the morning with Statter911 and footage of a car running into a rock slide. Highway 129 in Blount County, Tennessee. Begin with one rock slide. Add one camera crew, filming said rock slide. Add one distracted driver, watching said camera crew. To the guy's credit, they were on a curve. But, really, aren't we all? No apparent injuries on that one.

Afternoon saw an aircraft accident in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. A single-engine Lancair IV-P was gliding to an emergency landing on the beach, when it struck and killed a jogger. The victim was listening to his iPod, and apparently didn't the plane's silent but deadly approach. He was killed instantly. The pilot and passenger were unharmed. Read the WIS10 account.

Also this afternoon, and right here at home, a sport-utility vehicle crashed off the end of Interstate 540 near Knightdale. The vehicle traveled down an embankment, and into a dense cluster of trees. The driver was discovered dead, though investigators say that there's a different reason for his death. Additional details have not been released, reports this WTVD story. They also posted a number of aerial and traffic camera photos.

looks like that would’ve been the opportune time to rob a bank in K-dale. My sources say that running off the end of the road there isn’t unusual.
