Driver Adjusting Seat Loses Control, Goes On A Ride

ASHEBORO NC – Photos of a bizarre vehicle accident were shared across Facebook yesterday. The photos from 2 separate posts were shared hundreds of times show a vehicle that looks to be defying gravity standing almost vertically.

The accident occurred Sunday, January 3rd just before 1:30 PM next to the KFC on Dixie Dr. According to an accident report by the Asheboro Police Department, 73-year-old Martha Gurgainus was traveling southbound on Cliff Rd next to the KFC, when she lost control of the vehicle and drove up onto a guidewire of a utility pole on E Dorsett Ave. The driver told police that she may have been going too fast and that she was attempting to re-adjust her seat when her foot hit the gas pedal, causing her vehicle to drive forward. Gurgainus was not injured in the accident and was charged with driving too fast for conditions. The report indicates the road surface was wet at the time of the crash.
