Vale Man Killed in Tuesday Accident

NC Highway Patrol

On Tuesday (June 14th) at approximately 11:40 AM, the NC State Highway Patrol responded to and investigated a fatal collision in Catawba County on Startown Road near West Maiden Road.  A 2007 Volvo dump truck was traveling north on Startown Road, ran off the road to the right, crossed back over the centerline, and overturned on the roadway.  The truck was hauling a load of gravel.

The driver, Billie Douglas Gambill, 68, of Vale, was critically injured and transported by emergency personnel to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.  He was restrained by a seatbelt.  The initial investigation indicates driver overcorrection as a contributing circumstance.
