Firefighter pulls up to crash, realizes his family was hit by suspected overdosing driver


HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) — On April 21, High Point firefighter Dustin Reid responded to a call he would never forget, describing it as a “total nightmare.”

Police reports say investigators believe Kenneth Gordon overdosed while driving a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado and merged onto Business 85 off the Brentwood Street ramp heading south, causing a wreck with a 2008 Jeep. Reid’s wife and two young children were inside the Jeep.

Reid pulled up on the call, knowing his wife was actually on her way to see him at the station.

“Any firefighters worst dream,” he said. “To see your wife and kids and the vehicle badly smashed. Thank God that they were fine.”

One of the nearly dozen people who called into 911 describes the crash and a close encounter with Gordon.
