Last week, a hit-and-run crash took the life of a pedestrian in Woodfin. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened along Weaverville Highway on Thursday. The pedestrian, 59-year-old Steven Banks of Asheville, was killed about three-tenths of a mile from his home. Initial reports indicate that the car involved was traveling at a high rate of speed and was swerving prior to the wreck.
A few days after the crash, law enforcement officers with the Woodfin Police Department received a tip about the car involved in the wreck. On Monday, a warrant was issued for Fonda Jane Adkins in connection with the felony hit-and-run change and driving with a revoked license. The team at Davis Law Group, P.A. sends their deepest condolences to Steven Banks’ family members and friends.
