Asheville Woman Killed In Friday Afternoon Wreck

Asheville Police are investigating a deadly collision Friday afternoon.

The wreck happened at 4:58 p.m. on New Leicester Highway at Druid Drive. Asheville Police Department spokesperson Christina Hallingse said that Monica Hagen, of Asheville, was driving a 1990 Chrysler Imperial north on New Leicester Highway and was attempting to make a left turn onto Druid Drive since traffic was backed up in the left lane. Hallingse said that Hagen did not have a clear line of sight of the right lane and did not see an oncoming 1997 Dodge Ram truck driven by Nicholas Guy, also of Asheville. The truck struck Hagen’s car on the passenger side where a woman, Tami Hagen, was sitting.

Tami Hagen was transported to Mission Hospital where she died due to her injuries.
