On Nov. 30, 2015, at approximately 6:15 p.m., the Boone Police Department responded to a motor vehicle collision with a pedestrian. A 2002 Honda Accord driven by Tyler Christian Devore, 18, of Statesville, struck a pedestrian, Harry Edward Noblett, 66, of Boone, in the 700 block of Blowing Rock Road.

Mr. Devore was travelling south on Blowing Rock Road when Noblett entered the highway walking across the southbound lanes to the center turn lane before walking back into the southbound lanes. There was not a designated crosswalk at this location.

Devore was not injured. Mr. Noblett sustained serious injuries. Noblett was taken to Watuaga Medical Center before being transferred to Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem.

Alcohol nor speed appear to be a factor for Devore in the collision. Alcohol is suspected in regards to Mr. Noblett. The investigation is on-going.
