Four people, including two children, were slightly injured Dec. 16 when the driver of a car ran a red light and slammed into a pickup on the outskirts of Thomson.
Trooper First Class Ben Rollins, of the Georgia State Patrol post in Grovetown, said the two-vehicle wreck happened shortly after 11 a.m. at the intersection of Whiteoak Road and the new Thomson Bypass.
A 1999 Plymouth Breeze driven by Jessica Spillers, of Dearing, collided with a 1994 Ford F-150 pickup driven by Thomas Andrew McCarty, of Washington. Ms. Spillers was trav- eling east on Whiteoak Road, and Mr. McCarty was trav- eling north on the Thomson Bypass.
Trooper Rollins said the accident was a result of Ms. Spillers' failure to stop at the traffic signal, which was red.
All four of the injured people were taken by ambulance to the emergency room of McDuffie Regional Medical Center in Thomson. They were released later.
Trooper Rollins said Ms. Spillers was charged with running a red light.
