Accident at Gore-Subligna/U. S. Hwy. 27 Intersection on Monday

A two-vehicle accident at the Gore-Subligna Road / U.S. Highway 27 intersection at Gore resulted in serious injuries and required a person to be airlifted by Lifeforce on Monday afternoon.

The accident happened shortly after noon and backed up traffic in both directions for a period of time.  Road construction on Highway 27 at Taylor’s Ridge added to the congestion.
