LaGRANGE — One man escaped a rollover wreck without injury early Monday afternoon on Stovall Road while at least two others were hurt among four separate wrecks in LaGrange the same evening.
An 18-year-old driver went off the road in a 1999 Ford Explorer SUV on Stovall Road near Briley Road about 2 p.m. Monday, over-corrected and overturned the vehicle, according to a Georgia State Patrol report. The man was not injured in the wreck.
The driver was not distracted nor was his view obstructed, according to the GSP report, but he was cited with failure to maintain lane.
The driver of a Mazda Protege slammed into the the rear of a Honda Accord in front of Fuller’s Superette at 900 Hamilton Road, near Fendig Street, about 5:15 p.m. Monday. The driver of the Protege was taken to the hospital for neck pain sustained in the wreck, according to LaGrange police. Four occupants were in the Accord, with a child taken to West Georgia Medical Center after complaining of stomach pain.
The driver of the Protege and child were treated and released, according to police. The driver of the Protege, the sole occupant of the vehicle, also was cited with following too closely and driving without a valid license.
Another wreck reported about 5 p.m. snarled traffic at Vernon and South Greenwood streets for nearly 30 minutes. In that incident, a GMC 1500 pickup truck pulling out of the Shell station on North Greenwood at Vernon streets struck the side of a westbound Mercedes Benz C230 in the turning lane on Vernon Street, according to a LaGrange police report. No one was injured.
At least two other traffic incidents were reported to 911 between 5 and 5:30 p.m. Monday: a hit and run on a vehicle at Lafayette Parkway and Morgan Street; and a driver suffered a reported seizure, according to a 911 call, at Horace King Street and Lafayette Parkway.
There was no further information in those incidents available this morning.
