Triple Fatal Crash, One Year Later
New Year's Day marks the one year anniversary of a car accident that claimed the life of three Buncombe County teenagers.
Crosses, flowers and other arrangements mark the place where it happened at the intersection of Brevard Road and Ledbetter Road. The memorial is for 18-year-old David Hutchison, his 17-year-old brother, Shawn, and 14-year-old Matt Strickland.
The three were killed when a car driven by David Hutchinson hydro-planed and slammed head-on into an 18-wheeler. They all died on impact. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
