Two rear-end collisions in Hopkinsville sent motorists to Jennie Stuart Medical Center last night.
The first wreck happened about twenty minutes before five on South Virginia Street, where 27-year old Vernita Watkins of Hopkinsville was slowing in traffic when she was struck in the rear by a vehicle driven by 51-year old Luann Fries of Hopkinsville.
Ms. Fries told police she didn’t realize traffic was slowing down in time to stop. Ms. Watkins was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart for neck pain.
The second incident happened around 9:40 on McLean Avenue, where Lisa Burrus of Hopkinsville was stopped to make a left turn and was rear-ended by Heather Sadler of Hopkinsville. Ms. Sadler said she became distracted and took her foot off the brake, causing the wreck.
Ms. Burrus was taken by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.
