HIGH POINT, N.C. – High Point police said they’ve responded to nearly 100 auto collisions from Friday to Saturday as a storm hit the area.

This includes 68 collisions involving property damages, 11 involving an injury, seven where it is not known if someone is injured and eight hit-and-runs involving property damage, according to High Point Police Captain Steven Myers.

Thousands are still without power after a storm hit the area Friday, causing downed trees and power lines and strong winds.

    Hmm…. They probably would have had less accidents today, if maybe they had some officers directing traffic at the worst intersections in High Point. People were blowing through lights due to no power after HP PD said to treat them like “four way stop” Yeah right guys, maybe try and do what your brothers in Greensboro did… directing traffic on some of the busiest intersections… Duh….

    I agree with Cait Byrd. HPPD and HP city officials should be ashamed. No PD at any major intersection without traffic lights. No city crews removing overhanging trees along Westchester(now on day 3). No effort to assist the public in any fashion. Just sit back and let people crash and burn. Makes the Atlanta fiasco look like a walk in the park. Sadly, HP is too small of a city for this mess to get any national media attention. even the local stations haven’t commented on this sorriness.
