    Fatal Accident Claims 5 Lives In Mitchell County

    Fatal Accident Claims 5 Lives In Mitchell County


    A tragic accident in Mitchell County leaves 5 people dead, including a teacher from Enka High School. It happened Thursday morning in a sharp curve on Highway 226 near north of Spruce Pine. Troopers say a pickup truck from Marion was headed North when it collided with a sport utility vehicle going South. The driver of the SUV was a teacher from Enka High School. Jimmie Dotts was on his way to work. He was a career technical education instructor. Students at Enka were shocked and saddened by the news that their teacher was killed. Junior Justin Embler was sitting in Mr. Dotts' class waiting for him, when the announcement came over the loudspeaker.
    "It was just silent. Everybody just stopped we just... it's like everything went still," he said.
    The driver of the pick-up truck was Roberto Sixtos.* The other passengers names have not been released.

    *Not mentioned in this story, is that the driver was unlicensed.

    Mitchell wreck victims ID’d

    MARION — Dozens of friends had come and gone by Friday night outside Westmoreland funeral home, where family members were making arrangements for four men killed in Western North Carolina’s deadliest accident in recent memory.

    Melchor Macias, 45, Garcia, Rogelio Magana, 20, Isidro Gabriel Ruiz, 24, and Roberto Sixtos, 21, were killed on their way to a construction job in Mitchell County.

    Sixtos was behind the wheel of a pickup truck when he slipped into the opposing lane on a curve and collided head-on with an SUV, being driven by a schoolteacher, according to the Sate Highway Patrol. Enka High teacher Jimmy Dotts also was killed.

    The 6:15 a.m. crash Thursday happened on N.C. 226 between Spruce Pine and Bakersville.

    Investigators released names Friday, but little other new information on a crash investigation.

    Family members said Garcia, Magana, Ruiz and Sixtos all came from the tiny crossroads town of Cheran in the Mexican state of Michoacan, about 200 miles west of Mexico City.

    Cheran is known for being a community of seasonal workers. About three-fourths of its population leaves for the United States during the spring and summer.

    But Garcia, Magana, Ruiz and Sixtos had come to Marion to stay, working in masonry. Ruiz had been in the area the longest, working construction jobs for about eight years.

    Macias had five children, in their late teens and early 20s. Magana had a 7-month-old daughter.

    The range of emotions that the illegals generate by their actions are always negative: either extreme anger or extreme heartbreak. Never do they bring happiness to the Americans or give us a reason to smile.

    I hold anyone voting in favor of amnesty directly responsible for all this senseless tragedy and plan on constantly reminding them of this and never let them forget it.

    Crash kills 5 in Mitchell County

    Bakersville – Seat belts and airbags would have made no difference in a head-on collision Thursday that killed five men, including a popular Enka High School teacher, the N.C. Highway Patrol said.

    The 6:15 a.m. crash appeared to have happened in an instant, just inside a curve on N.C. 226 north of Spruce Pine in Mitchell County. Investigators found no skid marks leading up to where the vehicles collided, Trooper Brian Wyatt said.

    The Highway Patrol was unsure how fast the Chevrolet S-10 extended-cab pickup truck with an unlicensed driver and a Land Rover Discovery being driven by teacher Jimmie Dotts were traveling. The speed limit in that stretch is 55 mph. All of the men died at the scene.

    At Enka High, students held a memorial service at a flagpole for Dotts, a 58-year-old drafting teacher who was driving alone while on his way to school.

    When I first saw this story, no mention was made of the legal status of the Mexicans, but I knew they had to be illegals. Several school teachers have been killed in North Carolina, in recent years, by illegals. Another senseless killing, by people who shouldn't even be here. I blame the government for their deaths.
