Two hospitalized, released in car accident Friday

Two people were injured in a car accident Friday on U.S. Highway 40. At about noon, Sara Moore, 19, was turning left off Weiss Drive onto northbound U.S. 40. Her 1998 Ford Explorer collided with the front passenger-side of a 2001 Buick LeSabre southbound on U.S. 40. Moore and a passenger in the LeSabre, Verline Curtis, 75, were taken by ambulance to the hospital where they were treated and released for minor injuries. Moore was cited for failing to yield the right of way at a stop sign and having no proof of insurance. Traffic on U.S. 40 was stopped periodically in both directions for about one hour while officers investigated the accident.
