Two accidents recently resulted in the participants being treated for injuries.
On June 25th, 22 year old Jessica A. Hatch of Edinburg was traveling east bound. Hatch ran off the roadway to the right in an attempt to not hit raccoons. Hatch lost control of the vehicle, causing the vehicle to travel into the ditch on the south side of the road. Hatch’s vehicle then rolled after colliding with the ditch embankment. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels facing west. Hatch had two passengers, who were both treated on scene by EMS and refused further treatment.
On June 23rd, 20 year old Deiona A. Andrews of Kincaid was northbound on County Highway 11 just north of 1800 North Road. Andrews stated that she was trying to get her purse for a cigarette when she ran off the right side of the roadway. Andrews traveled about 108 feet on the right shoulder in the rocks before sliding down into the grass in the right ditch. Andrews then traveled approximately 123 feet in the ditch before striking the first utility pole north of pole 40. Andrew’s vehicle hit the pole on the driver’s side just in front of the driver’s door. Andrews was taken to St. John’s Hospital via Medics First Ambulance to be treated for injuries.
