A South Chancery Street wreck ended with three vehicles being towed and three individuals transported for treatment. The crash occurred Wednesday after one motorist failed to stop, creating two collisions.
A three-car collision at the intersection of S. Chancery Street and Old Viola Road on Wednesday that backed traffic to Frank G. Clement Bridge is being blamed on driver error.According to the police report, driver Harold Soloman and passenger Magnolia Soloman were traveling toward downtown on Chancery in a Ford Ranger and stopped to turn onto Old Viola Road when they were struck from behind by Gage Brandon driving a Hyundai Sonata.“The Ranger began to slow, coming to a stop in the traffic lane waiting to turn left onto Old Viola Road,” said officer Matthew Stubblefield. “Mr. Brandon stated he did not allow himself enough room to slow down behind the Ranger.”While Brandon’s vehicle came to rest in the shoulder of the road next to the guardrail with front-end damage, the force of impact caused Soloman’s vehicle to lunge forward. He collided with oncoming traffic, a Honda Accord traveling outbound with driver Kayla Reed and passenger Kiley Fewell.
