High Point, NC (December 31, 2020) –Two High Point residents suffered injuries in a hit-and-run crash that took place on Monday, December 28th. The accident was reported around 3:30 p.m. on Pershing Avenue, near the intersection with Ragan Avenue.
According to Officer J.M. Spoon with the High Point Police Department, Jayden Robinson was operating a vehicle on Pershing Avenue when he came to a stop sign at the intersection with Ragan Avenue. Robinson slowed his vehicle at the stop sign before proceeding into the intersection. While in the intersection, Robinson’s vehicle was struck by a car traveling in the opposite direction.
