According to Michael Purdy of the Tryon Fire Department, the collision occurred just before 3 p.m. Tryon Police and Fire Departments were on the scene moments after. 

“I was coming down the road to pick up my son from pre-k, and just bad tires and wet roads just totally got us,” said Katelyn Coon, who was involved in the accident. “I came around the corner and lost control of the car, tried to correct, and it just made it worse, and I slammed into that poor woman.”

The road was cleared as of 4 p.m. There were no major injuries reported.
