Two women were injured in an accident on Oak Knob Road Wednesday morning, both were taken by ambulance from the scene. A red Volkswagen driven by Kristan Wix Jones, age 25, was traveling away from town on Oak Knob, where it met the silver Buick driven by Linda Diane Allen, age 65.
THP Trooper Gerald Carter said that according to Allen, she saw the other vehicle traveling towards her on her side of the road and stopped her own vehicle to wait. The Volkswagen struck her car on the front left side, spinning off into the opposite ditch and coming to a rest facing the direction from which it came. The collision occurred near a bend in the road.
Ms. Allen was able to get out of her vehicle by crawling from the front to the back seat, and was taken by ambulance to MCGH, complaining of back, leg, and rib pain, according to Carter. Ms. Jones, who Trooper Carter said was not wearing a seat belt, was still behind the wheel of the VW when rescue units arrived. Extraction units helped her out, and she was taken by ambulance to Sumner Regional Medical Center.
Two extraction units, the Lafayette Fire and Police Departments, THP, and Macon County EMS all responded to the accident, which occurred at about 8:30 a.m.
