On Monday, October 29, 2018, at approximately 7:43 A.M., Matthews officers responded to the area of E. John St. and Charles Buckley Ct. regarding a multiple vehicle crash. After further investigation, it was determined that a vehicle had pulled out of a driveway in the 500 block of E. John St. and was struck by another vehicle traveling eastbound on E. John St., which then struck a third vehicle that was traveling westbound on E. John St. The drivers of the second and third vehicles were both taken to Novant-Matthews for evaluation of possible injuries. The driver of the vehicle that pulled onto E. John St. was taken to CMC Main for evaluation of possible injuries but sadly, died later at the hospital. This is still an ongoing investigation.
