Boone plow crash victim dies
BOONE -- A woman seriously injured early last week in the collision of a snow plow and an SUV has died of her injuries, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.
Reinald Gomez, 57, died Thursday night at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. She had been injured three days earlier when a Boone city plow slid from a side road into Blowing Rock Road and struck an SUV in which Gomez was a passenger.
The driver of the plow said the brakes failed on the truck. The Highway Patrol is investigating. The collision occurred during a snow storm.
