A Cadiz woman was injured in a two-vehicle wreck in front of Trigg County Hospital Wednesday morning.
A news release from Cadiz Police says 45-year old Freida Maxey of Cadiz was stopped on Main Street waiting for traffic to pass so she could make a left turn into the emergency room at the hospital. Approaching from behind was 20-year old Lora Helm of Cadiz, who said she dropped something and looked down to pick it up.
Ms. Helm said it was too late to stop when she looked back up and struck Ms. Maxey’s vehicle in the rear. Maxey was treated for a cut to the foot at Trigg County Hospital, while Helm sustained a minor facial injury but refused treatment.
The incident happened around 9:40am, according to police.
