On Tuesday June 17, at about 4pm, Emergency Services were called out to the scene of this wreck at the stoplight at 4th Street and US Hwy 281. The front car in the line of damage was stopped at a green light, attempting to make an illegal left turn from a through lane. Two cars had stopped behind the first, however the white truck in back was unable to stop in time.
