Placeholder Image
Two people were injured when their vehicle rolled through a graveyard Tuesday morning during a two-vehicle crash on Manchester Highway.Treated at River Park Hospital were Timothy Seamons and passenger Deborah Rovsek. They were both riding in Seamons’ 1997 Toyota pickup around 6 a.m. Tuesday on Manchester Highway near Gardens of Memory.According to highway patrolman Ronnie Simmons, Seamons was heading east on Manchester Highway, traveling toward McMinnville, and was basically alongside a 1998 Buick driven by Lindsay Stribling when Stribling moved from the right to the left lane.The move caused her vehicle to strike the Simmons pickup near its rear, turning it just enough at highway speeds that its wheels caught the pavement and caused it to overturn. The truck flipped several times before coming to rest on its wheels in Gardens of Memory.Seamons and Rovsek were transported to the hospital, while Stribling was able to drive away in her car given the lack of damage.
