Vehicle ends up in front yard after accident
by Wes Mayer
An accident at the intersection of Jackson and Clark streets just north of downtown Newnan pushed one vehicle into the front yard of a home early Wednesday.
Around 10:38 a.m. Officer Scott Milam with the Newnan Police Department responded to the traffic accident involving two cars. While driving through a green light heading southbound on Jackson Street, an elderly woman in a blue Mercury Grand Marquis was struck on the driver's side by a blue Ford Fusion when the Fusion driver ran a red light traveling west on Clark Street.
The Grand Marquis was pushed up the small hill into the yard of 70 Jackson St. before coming to a stop, causing some damage to the home's yard and front porch.
Both drivers were transported to the hospital after complaining of pain, one in the leg and the other in the hand, but neither were seriously injured, Milam said.
The driver of the Focus, Lela Davis, 58, will face two charges - one for running a red light and another for driving without a license in her possession.
