One-vehicle wreck into building under investigation by GPD

The Graham Police Department is investigating a single-vehicle wreck which occurred Wednesday afternoon at the Young County Machine Inc. building.

GPD officers were dispatched at 12:20 p.m. Wednesday, July 22, to a one vehicle wreck in the 1800 block of the U.S. 380 bypass for a complaint that a vehicle ran off the road and struck the building. Officers arrived on scene and found the driver of the 2005 white Chevrolet pickup truck, Kathy McKinney, 25, of Graham, unresponsive. Two child passengers of the vehicle were removed from the truck by citizens who were on scene prior to the arrival of emergency services.

“Evidence shows at this time of the crash that the 6-month-old child passenger was restrained by a child safety seat and the 5-year-old child was restrained by a seat belt,” GPD chief Brent Bullock wrote in a press release. “Graham/Young County EMS and Graham Fire Rescue arrived on scene and immediately started treating the occupants of the vehicle.”

McKinney regained consciousness and was transported to Graham Regional Medical Center along with the two other occupants of the truck. The two children were later transported to Cook Children’s Medical Center for observation.

After an investigation of the scene of the crash, GPD and assisting departments determined that the vehicle was traveling eastbound in the 1800 block of the U.S. 380 bypass when the truck left the roadway.
