Teacher, Norwood resident dies in head-on collision

A Norwood resident died Saturday following a three-car collision near the Montgomery-Moore county line.

Kim Ingold, who just turned 50 on Friday, was killed when her Mazda was hit head-on by a septic pumper truck driven by Bethany Haywood, 28, of Troy, according to N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper N.J. Talley. Prior to hitting Ingold’s car, the truck sideswiped a Nissan Altima driven by Tiffany Jeffries, 43, of Raleigh, Talley said.

Haywood was around 1.7 miles east of Biscoe traveling east on N.C. Highway-24-27 when she crossed left of center, hit Jeffries’ car and then Ingold at 3:07 p.m., Talley said.

When Talley interviewed Haywood, she said she didn’t remember what happened.

Haywood had a broken left ankle and minor injuries, Talley said, while Jeffries and her brother were uninjured.

Ingold, a teacher in Anson County, was traveling alone, heading back from seeing her beloved N.C. State Wolfpack rout Western Carolina 41-0.

More on Ingold will appear later at thesnaponline.com and in the Tuesday edition of The Stanly News & Press.
