Wreck injures elderly couple

MILLEDGEVILLE — A two-vehicle accident on Lawrence Road resulted in serious injuries to a local Milledgeville couple and traffic charges for a teen driver. 

The incident occurred Sunday, July 14 around 10:40 a.m. 

According to a traffic report from the Georgia State Patrol, 85-year-old Ann Woodall, the driver, and her husband 87-year old Clarence Woodall, the passenger, were traveling west on Lawrence Road in their Nissan Altima when the driver of a Chrysler 300, traveling east, crossed the centerline and struck the Woodalls’ vehicle head-on. The driver of the Chrysler was identified as 19-year-old Dustin Roy Turner of Milledgeville. Both the Woodalls sustained injures from the accident and were transported by ground to the Medical Center of Central Georgia. 

Ann Woodall’s included broken bones in her left arm and right heel and fractured vertebrae in her neck while Clarence sustained a fractured hip and multiple stitches in his left arm, according the Woodalls’ son, Ray Woodall.

The driver of the second vehicle did not require medical attention.   

The Woodalls were released from the Medical Center Friday morning, their son said, who said his parents were on their way to church at the time of the accident. 

“It’s hard seeing your parents in so much pain,” said Woodall, adding that his mother has been admitted to a rehabilitation facility due to the severity of her injuries. 

According to the GSP report, Turner fell asleep at the wheel. He received citations for driving on the wrong side of the roadway, failure to maintain lane, and tire requirements because of the slick tires of the vehicle.
