by Allison Haver

No injuries were reported when a car flipped over and landed on the parking lot of a group of restaurants at the intersection of Blowing Rock Road and Rivers Street on Wednesday afternoon.
 
According to Boone Police reports, Eric Miller, 31, of Valley Hill Drive in Vilas, said another driver had stopped to let his 1998 Subaru pass through the intersection. Neither driver saw that a 2001 Ford was approaching in the lane behind the individual allowing the Subaru through, reports indicate.
 
The driver's car was hit, at an angle, on the passenger side and his car rolled over on to its top after traveling 12 feet.

The driver crawled out the passenger window.

Miller was issued a safe movement violation.

Officers estimated about $6,800 in damages for the overturned vehicle and around $4,000 in damages for the other vehicle involved.
