Teen injured in three vehicle wreck
Sgt. Criss Turnipseed, spokesman for the Mississippi Highway Patrol said initial reports indicate the 17-year-old Fulton resident pulled her Pontiac G6 into the path of a northbound 18-wheeler at the intersection east of Houlka. When the semi driver hit the Pontiac it pushed it into a third vehicle also approaching the intersection.
Turnipseed did not give the name of the 17-year-old.
“The three vehicle accident happened at Highway 15 and Highway 32 around 3 p.m., (Tuesday) the 13th,” said Turnipseed. “A MDOT International 18-wheeler hauling an asphalt paver was heading north on 15, driven by Thomas Gray, 50, of Water Valley. A Pontiac G6 was traveling west on Hwy 32 driven by a 17-year-old female from Fulton. There was also a Hyundai SUV driven by 49-year-old Demetrice Dockery of Cordova Tenn., traveling south on 15.”
The accident blocked traffic for almost an hour while the teenager was extracted from the vehicle by emergency response teams using the jaws of life.
The teenager was transported to the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo.
The drivers of the other two vehicles and a passenger in the MDOT truck, Bernarda Sandridge, 53, of Sardis, were not seriously injured.
“The Pontiac ran the stop sign on 32 and was hit in the right side by the 18 wheeler,” said Turnipseed. “The Pontiac was knocked into the south-bound Hyundai.”
Turnipseed said there were no charges filed and everyone was restrained.
Turnipseed said the accident was under investigation as of Thurday.
