No serious injuries in Friday wreck

 

No one was seriously injured in a Friday afternoon wreck that slowed traffic in Evans.

Jonquise Prince, 27, of Lincolnton, was driving west on Washington Road near Faircloth Drive at about 4:30 p.m. when she decided she needed to turn around, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Deputy Ted Powers. Prince didn’t see a Jeep on the inside lane, likely in her blind spot, and swerved her Honda Accord in front of him to to into Jim Whitehead Tire and Auto. The driver of the Jeep – Ritchie Singletary, 49, of Evans – veered into the center turn lane to avoid the crash before hitting Prince’s driver’s side.

Prince was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center for injuries that did not appear life-threatening, Powers said. She was determined to be at fault for the wreck for failing to maintain lane.

Singletary wasn’t injured.
