Kimberly Miller, 17, Chitwood Drive, Lafayette, was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville by Air Evac helicopter for treatment in the hospital's Trauma Center.
According to Lafayette Police, Ms. Miller' small car was crossing Ellington Drive from the west side of the Scottsville Road, and apparently did not see a 1996 Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck, driven by Jessie Lee Johnson, 30, Loftis Road, Lafayette, traveling south on the Scottsville Road.
The pickup truck struck the small car on the driver's door side, with both vehicles coming to a rest off the roadway in a residential yard at the southeast corner of the intersection.
Contacted at Vanderbilt this Tuesday, Kimberly Miller reported she had been moved to a private room early this week. The young woman sustained a badly broken leg in the two-vehicle accident.
A one vehicle accident on Hwy. 10 South became a three vehicle incident early this Monday morning when the driver of a 2006 Dodge 3500 stopped his vehicle in the southbound lane to check out the condition of the driver of a 2007 Nissan Versa who had just run into a utility pole.
A 1991 GMC Sonoma driven by Gary W. Gregory, 23, struck the Dodge truck in the rear, then rotated clockwise, coming to a rest in the northbound lane. THP Sgt. Ashley Mercer charged Gregory with violation of the due care law following the incident.
The driver of the blue Nissan Versa, Ella L. Young, 34, apparently ran off the roadway traveling south at about 6 a.m., continued southbound in the ditch line before striking a utility pole. There were no injuries in the early morning accident. However, traffic on Hwy. 10-south was delayed as emergency personnel cleared the roadway of the three vehicles involved in the crashes.
