Running a red light proved to be a poor choice for Verda “Burrhead” Justice, 61, of McVeigh, KY when he ended up crashing in to an SUV driven by an elderly woman.
Doris Bevins, 88, of Williamson, was turning her Toyota Highlander in to the South Williamson Wal-Mart at the South Side Mall intersection at Goody when she was hit on the driver’s side by Justice’s Mercury Sable. Justice was traveling northbound on U.S. 119 and a witness driving behind him at the time of the accident said that he had run a red light, causing the crash.
Since Justice drove directly into the side of the car where Bevins was, she suffered quite a few injuries, including a large laceration and contusion to her left leg and a head injury that caused her to briefly lose consciousness. She was taken to the Appalachian Regional Hospital by Appalachian First Response. Justice also went to Appalachian Regional Hospital with his wife Linda, 57, who was a passenger in his car at the time of the crash.
After the wreck, a variety of people responded to the call: The Belfry Volunteer Fire Department came with two trucks and eight men; there were also two firefighters from Blackberry and one firefighter from the Turkey Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
The Louisville injury lawyers at Gray and White Law hope that those involved in this accident will have a quick, full recovery.
