Ann Kathleen Tolbert died when the 2001 Buick LeSabre she was riding in was struck by a 1986 Toyota 4-Runner at Turner McCall Boulevard and North Broad Street around 7:25 p.m., according to GSP spokesman Gordy Wright.
The driver of the Buick, Betty Rowston, 87, and the passengers, Nancy Bryan, 88, Clare Harvey, 77, and Charlene Covington, 81, all of Rome, were taken to Floyd Medical Center for treatment. Rowston, Bryan and Harvey were treated and released while Covington remained in stable condition Monday, according to Floyd Medical Center spokesman Daniel Bevels.
The driver of the 4-Runner, Dalton Cole Warren Grant, 18, of Rome, was not injured.
Sgt. Scott Thompson with the Georgia State Patrol said no eyewitnesses have come forward to say they saw the wreck.
“There are conflicting stories as to what happened,” Thompson said. “We are looking for eyewitnesses to come forward so we can conclude our investigation and give the families some closure.”
The GSP’s Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the wreck, Thompson said. It will likely be several days before the investigation is completed, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Georgia State Patrol at 706-295-6004.
