HCM Executive Director Lisa James involved in car accident
Lisa James, executive director of Haywood Christian Ministry, was involved in a car accident Friday around 8 a.m. on Stevenson Cove Road in Waynesville.
Trooper Steve Allen with the N.C. Highway Patrol said the incident is still under investigation. Witnesses told him that James had parked her 2004 Mitsubishi four-door car in the road and was getting something out of the back seat when a person driving a 1996 Jeep Cherokee hit her from behind.
James was taken by ambulance to Mission Hospital and underwent surgery, although Allen said he was not sure what the surgery was for.
Her condition is stable, but no further information is available at this time.
The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.
