Wednesday morning marred by accidents
Velma Hutchings was rushed to DeKalb Community Hospital after her car veered off Smithville Highway on Wednesday morning, hit an embankment, went airborne and crashed into the opposite bank near the bridge at Dibrell.
Wednesday morning was dangerous for motorists in Warren County as three wrecks with injuries left lawmen scrambling to various corners of the county.The barrage of wrecks began on Old Rock Island Road when an elderly woman collided with a county mower. Troopers say Julia Smith, 80, was westbound on Old Rock Island Road near Eastside in her 2002 Nissan and was trying to pass a tractor driven by Jack Haston, 58, when she ended up striking the mower. The crash caused significant damage to both vehicles.
