A two-vehicle accident on Bullsboro Drive at the Ashley Park Boulevard intersection sent one person to the hospital Wednesday.
Rebecca Kovalcik of Newnan was eastbound on Bullsboro driving a Nissan Rogue when she attempted to turn left into the Shenandoah Plaza, according to Newnan Police Officer Chris Sudduth.
At the same time, Cindy Kerstetter in a Town and Country minivan was westbound on Bullsboro, Sudduth said.
Kerstetter’s vehicle hit the right passenger side of Kovalcik’s vehicle as it turned in front. The impact spun the Nissan completely around.
Kovalcik was semi-conscious after the accident and was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital, the officer said, adding Kerstetter refused treatment.
Airbags in both vehicles deployed, which lessened the possible injuries, Sudduth said. 
Kovalcik was charged with failure to yield.
