MATTHEWS – Mayor Pro Tem Ken McCool is recovering from a multi-car pile-up that occurred on Dec. 9 on I-26 near Airport Road in Asheville. 

McCool will not be attending tonight’s board of commissioners meeting because he is “receiving treatment from hospital doctors and a trauma surgeon to address severe injuries, pain, and bruising,” according to his Twitter account. 

Two of McCool’s friends were also involved in the wreck.
