Chick-til-A appreciation day

Posted in People, Spot News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2012 by bwarrenphoto

Just a quick image to peoples reaction to recent statements in support of a traditional marrage between a man and a woman. The line waiting to get in the parking lot of Chick-fil-A in High Pont, NC on Wednesday, Aug 1, 2012. The minority always cries the loudest, but the majority always get things done. If only the minority would quit thinking of only themselves and holding the rest of us back.

Distractions

Posted in Spot News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2009 by bwarrenphoto

So I am now working at a Commercial Studio in High Point, NC. I was working a little late when as I was packing up to leave I heard multiple sirens outside. The PJ in me came alive, and my heart began to race as I heard the sirens one after another cut off just down the street. I flipped on the scanner to try to catch a heads up of what was going on. Car off the roadway, only being held by two trees. As if I was not excited enough.

When I got there (business 85, north bound lane, just north of Prospect Dr.), the scene was somewhat of a let down (fortunately for the driver). My assumption of the single car down an embankment is that the driver was focused a bit too hard on something else besides driving as tire tracks gradually moved into the grass with a hard turn to the left just as the tracks go strait over the Hwy marker signs in the foreground of pic 2. The oversteer must have occurred as the car ended up back down the same way as when it first went off course.

While I was there I took about 10 pics, here are a couple.

Another thought I had. I wonder how many people watched this happen (being the road and time of day: 5:30 p.m.). As far as I could tell, no one had stopped besides the emergency services. Hmmm.

I was on my way home from school when I heard there had been a pretty bad accident on the scanner.  I wasn’t sure where it was, but when I heard State Highway Patrol was on there way I had a good idea that it may be in front of me, especially after an ambulance went by.  

“The white car acted like it was going to stop, and then just turned in front of the car right in front of us,” says a witness of the accident, “the car in front of us was running at least the speed limit, which is 55 right through here when they hit.”

Two cars had collided head on after one tried to make a quick turn in front of north bound traffic.  All passengers were injured, one having to be air lifted, and both cars were totaled.  Guil-Rand fire department and EMS responded to the accident and quickly helped the passengers of the 2 cars.

Here are a few snaps.

I finished eating my lunch on Friday, November 7, 2008 and I came across the scene where a crowd was all staring at the sky in Downtown Greensboro. Here is what was going on.

Car vs. Building in Kernersville

Residents of Lindsey Manor Apartment Complex in Kernersville, NC got a jolt on Saturday morning, November 1, 2008, when a Honda Accord driven by Peggy Hicks crashed into the front door of apartment B of building 474.

Peggy says she was coming to visit friends that lived in the apartments and when pulling into a parking spot stepped on the gas instead of the brake.

Peggy’s car crashed though a brick support column which held up the second floor’s front porch, sending the column back over the roof of her car, smashing it in.  

Residents in the apartment just above the accident had to be evacuated out their back door down a ladder with the help of Kernersville fire fighters.
