At about 7 a.m., a student going to school and traveling north on the New Harmony Road in a 1998 Chevy, "ran off the right side of the road, hit a tree and rolled over onto its side," according to a THP official Traffic Crash Report by Tpr. Gerald Carter.
The juvenile girl was transported to Hartsville Medical Center where she was stabilized, and then transported on to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for treatment of a possible head injury. She could not be flown by LifeFlight or AirEvac due to weather conditions. Her condition was through not to be serious and she was expected to be released from the hospital on Saturday.
Then on the Galen Road later Thursday morning, a Geo Tracker driven by Leszie L. Ford, 22, Red Boiling Springs left the roadway traveling south near the old Roark Country Store.
The driver was not injured seriously, but was transported to the Lafayette hospital for observation and released later that same day.
The general rainfall ended early in the day, leaving between .5 and 1-inch in many rain gages all across the region. A second system briefly moved through the southern part of the county Thursday night, adding another .3 or so to many rain buckets in the county.
