LANSING-Catherine Marie Doty of Creston was airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center Thursday afternoon after the car she was driving careened into Horse Creek.

That’s according to North Carolina State Trooper S Staley who said a woman driving a late-model Nissan car was traveling on East Little Horse Creek Road toward the intersection of South Big Horse Creek Road shortly after 3 p.m. on Jan. 7.

Before reaching the bridge that crosses Horse Creek, Staley said Doty traveled off the roadway to the right and cras336hed into the creek. The car came to rest on its top.

Following the incident, Staley said the accident appeared to be caused by a medical issue experienced by Doty.

Her condition is still unknown at this time. The Jefferson Post will update with further details as they become available.
