Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Hwy. 114 and Bellah Avenue around 2:40 p.m. yesterday, according to Summerville Police reports.
Kimberly R. Lindsey, 38, of James Street, Summerville, was at the stop sign on Bellah Avenue and was having a hard time seeing around a utility pole, she told policeman Phillip Cox. Lindsey turned left on Hwy. 114 in her silver 2008 Chevrolet Uplander.
She didn’t see the approaching silver 2003 Ford F-250 being driven by Rickey J. Smith, 56, of Fort Oglethorpe.
“Smith stated that as he was approaching the Bellah Avenue intersection that [Lindsey] pulled from Bellah Avenue into his path of travel. [Smith] stated that he made an evasive maneuver to the left in attempts to avoid a collision but was unsuccessful,” Officer Cox reported.
Linsdey and her 67-year-old passenger, Nelda Lindsey, of Summerville, complained of injuries, according to an accident report. Kimberly Lindsey was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign and driving with a suspended registration.
