Lincolnton Man Killed in Friday Night Crash

At about 7:50 Saturday morning (November 6), the North Carolina State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a fatal accident in Lincoln County on Buffalo Shoals Road, near Beal Road. The deceased is 60-year-old Michael Alan Walker of Lincolnton.

The accident occurred as a 2000 Kia passenger car driven by Mr. Walker was southbound on Buffalo Shoals Road when the driver lost control in a curve, overcorrected, ran off the road, overturned several times, and collided with a utility pole. Mr. Walker was ejected and passed away at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the collision occurred late Friday evening (November 5), although it was not discovered until Saturday morning.
