Because incorrect information was provided to a Chronicle reporter at the scene, the direction of an Appling driver involved in a Thursday wreck with a Columbia County sheriff's deputy was reported incorrectly.

Sandra Carleen Carter, 49, of Shucraft Road in Appling, was traveling south on Appling-Harlem Highway crossing the bridge over Interstate 20 when she attempted to turn left onto the eastbound on-ramp, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's Office accident report.

The Chronicle regrets the error.
