Woman, 53, dies in crash
Police say a driver’s medical condition likely led to a crash that left one dead and put three people in the hospital on Saturday.
Police responded to the crash at the intersection of S. College Drive and S. Main Street at around 2:09 p.m., where they found a 2007 Ford Ranger driven by Divie Martin, 59, collided with a 1990 Toyota Camry driven by Gloria Fogle, also 59.
According to police, Martin was traveling northeast on S. College Drive and ran a red light before colliding with Fogle, who was traveling south on S. Main Street. Both vehicles were traveling at around 40 mph, according to High Point police Lt. Lee Lanier.
Police say Martin was suffering from a medical condition when he went through the red light.
Nancy Cole, 53, was a passenger with Fogle and was trapped in the vehicle after the crash. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Guilford County EMS.
Martin, Fogle and a 15-year-old passenger who was riding with Martin were taken to High Point Regional. Fogle was in serious condition as of press time, suffering from broken bones, Lanier said. Martin and the juvenile suffered minor injuries, he said.
The accident is still under investigation, police said, adding that the District Attorney’s office has determined that Martin will be charged with running a red light but not charged in the death.
