Area Hospitals See An Increase In Weather Related Injuries

With the icy conditions sticking around for another day, a couple of area hospitals are reporting an increase in weather related injuries.

Beaufort County Hospital officials say they've seen patients from both vehicle accidents and ice slips, while Onslow Memorial Hospital has also seen a few patients reporting to their Emergency Department after a weather related traffic accident and at least three patients coming in after falling on ice.

Officials at Pitt County Memorial Hospital, Lenoir Memorial and hospitals in Edgecombe and Martin County say they haven't seen any weather related injuries at their facilities.

    You act like this article took the place of a more important one. It didn't, there's plenty of web space. Pick and choose at will. Don't open this one if you aren't interested in it and you won't have an excuse to whine. Simple.

    Cissy...I'd rather read about this than about soldiers killed in war, murders, assaults, rapes, etc.

    Well it looks like the school system doesn't care that people fall and get hurt and the roads are still bad, there are alot of people who travel long distances to get to BCCC and it is on a two hour delay, our life is more important than that school and so is our children, they are not considering people who have to commute to school and will be counted absent. How fair is that. The back roads have not been touched very dangerous to travel how stupid can they actually be. Maybe the hospital can make some money off of the storm.

    I agree with Cissy. People go out in the weather and shouldn't and then fall or have a wreck and most of us could care less.

    Why is the reporter bothering hospital officials with seemingly pointless inquires. This article has no news value.
