Wreck victim memory lives on
Trooper: Driver crossed centerline
Mar. 24, 2007

SHELBY Ann Pennington placed a cross, balloons and flowers in memory of her daughter Kim Newton on the side of Fallston Road near the spot of the fatal wreck that claimed her child's life.

Ms. Newton, a 37-year-old mentally disabled Fallston resident, died Monday night at Cleveland Regional Medical Center after the Transportation Administration of Cleveland County van she was riding in was hit head-on by a pickup truck.

"She had a very good home life," said Ms. Pennington. "She was everybody's little girl. We called her baby."

The wreck happened shortly before 4 p.m. at the intersection of Fallston Road and Berry Drive, near Wallace Grove Road.

Ms. Newton boarded the van minutes before the wreck. She was picked up from the Life Enrichment Center, where she spent weekdays for the last 13 years. The van was headed to Fallston when witnesses said a truck swerved, crossed the centerline and struck the van.

"She's been riding the TACC bus for years," said Ms. Pennington. "They treated her like family."

Ms. Pennington said she wants closure.

"This has been the hardest thing I've ever had to do," said Ms. Pennington. "You want answers. I want to know what happened."

Ms. Pennington said as her family grieved during Thursday's funeral, people from around the county reached out to them to share their memories and condolences.

"She'll be missed very much. Kim received so many flowers at her funeral," said Ms. Pennington. "My living room looks like a flower shop."
