Mother allowed to keep Memorial on Highway
AMORY – Sherrell Clark, whose daughter and unborn twin grandchildren, were killed in an auto accident in 2006, has been given permission to leave her memorial standing. MDOT met with Cox this morning at the site of the memorial located on Highway 371 just north of Cason Road. MDOT measured the distance from the highway and the memorial is at least 7 feet outside of the right of way.
Clark’s daughter, Tory Lynn Cox Plunkett, was killed in a head on collision with a drunk driver on April 8,2006. Her unborn twins also died as did the driver of the other vehicle.
Clark originally erected the memorial at the site of the accident, but was informed that is was in the right of way and had to be moved. She was relocated to its current location, just north of Cason Road. The sign-like memorial shows pictures of Clark’s daughter and two newborn children.
