A woman who severely injured a man and his grandson in a car crash was officially charged with two felonies last month.
On June 10, Laura Palmer, 56, of Waynesville, was indicted by a Haywood County Grand Jury on two charges of felony serious injury by vehicle.
According to the indictment and search warrant, Palmer had alcohol, THC and Paroxetine, an anti-anxiety drug, in her system on Jan. 22, at the time that her 2016 Subaru Impreza crossed the center line on Crabtree Road, which led to a collision between her vehicle and the one driven by Junior Frisbee that hospitalized the man and his grandson, Bridger Jones.
Frisbee is well-known in the community as the owner of Pioneer Supply in Waynesville, where he can frequently be seen sitting in a rocking chair chatting with customers.
Palmer was released on $20,000 bond.
