A Union City woman was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City by ambulance Friday for possible injuries after an accident on Highway 51.
Margelene C. Barkley, 95, of Union City was traveling on Mount Zion Road and crossed over the southbound lane of Highway 51 Friday morning, stopping in the cross section and waiting to cross the northbound lane of Highway 51.
She proceeded onto Highway 51 into the path of a semi-truck being driven by Jeffrey Charles Gorman, 45, of 272 Satinwood Circle, Kissimmee, Fla. When the semi-truck struck Ms. Barkley’s vehicle, her car went into a spin, striking a stop sign and spinning twice more before coming to a stop in the ditch.
She was charged with failure to yield the right of way.
