A Rome woman was taken to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga after she was injured in a wreck on Redmond Road, police reported.
The driver of a 2002 Chevrolet C15, 43-year-old Timie Michelle Strickland, of 54 Surrey Trail, was taken to Redmond Regional Medical Center and then sent to Chattanooga, said Rome Police Pfc. Ron George.
Stricklands crash happened about at 6:52 a.m. near the Redmond Regional entrance.
Police reports indicate Strickland was heading west on Redmond Road and turned left onto John Maddox Drive into the path of a 2006 Toyota Tundra driven by Matthew Davis, 22, of 548 Rosedale Road. Davis said another vehicle turning onto John Maddox may have obscured Stricklands view, according to the report.
The collision ejected Strickland from her vehicle, trapping her underneath, George said.
Witnesses who stopped actually turned the vehicle upright to get the driver (Strickland) out from underneath, he said. That was pretty heroic and pretty strong.
George said Strickland, who was aware and alert when he arrived, appeared to have sustained a broken pelvis and other injuries. Her condition was not available Wednesday evening.
No citations were listed on the police report in the crash.
The second crash happened at about 8:40 a.m. on U.S. 27 near Georgia Highlands College, according to Floyd County police reports.
That wreck occurred when a southbound 2005 Kia Sorento driven by Crystal Lynn Bailey, age unavailable, of Adairsville slid into the northbound lanes and was struck in the front passenger side by a northbound 1998 Chevrolet Lumina driven by Phyllis S. Dowdy, age unavailable, of Cedartown, reports stated. The impact caused Baileys vehicle to overturn.
Bailey, Dowdy and Dowdys passenger, Donald Dowdy, 70, also of Cedartown, were taken to Floyd Medical Center for treatment.
Bailey was treated and released Wednesday, while both Phyllis Dowdy and Donald Dowdy remained at the hospital Wednesday night, a hospital spokeswoman said.
No citations were issued in the crash, according to the police report.
