Published 12:00 am Tuesday, June 9, 2009

A two-car wreck Monday afternoon on Iowa Boulevard at the Interstate 20 overpass sent two children to the hospital.

Reginald Moore, 10, and Tinikia Moore, 12, address unavailable, were taken to River Region Medical Center after the vehicle driven by their mother, Tina Green, no address available, was rear-ended by a 2000 Astro van on Iowa Boulevard, said Vicksburg police officer Bobby Jones.

Green had stopped her vehicle at the curve of the road to talk to a pedestrian when the van, driven by Kilpatrick Wells II, 18, 304 Linda St., came from behind, unable to stop and rear-ended Green’s car, said Jones.

Neither driver was cited for the wreck, but Green was cited for no driver’s license and no child restraint for her 3-year-old, Tmiya Moore, who was also in the car, said Jones.

Jones said the two children were treated and released, but a River Region spokesman did not return a call for a condition report on the two children.
