City woman injured in one of two wrecks

One woman was injured in two two-vehicle wrecks reported in the city Thursday.

A Vicksburg woman was taken to River Region Medical Center, after her vehicle flipped over during a two-car wreck on U.S. 61 North in the county Thursday afternoon.

Daisey Daniels, 78, 14195 Mississippi 465, was northbound on U.S. 61 near Childs Road when her vehicle collided with a Buick driven by Harry M. Childs, 71, 550 Childs Road, said Mississippi Highway Patrolman Wayne Smith.

Childs said he was attempting to turn right onto Childs Road from U.S. 61 North when the wreck occurred.

A spokesman for River Region said this morning that Daniels was in good condition.

No citations were issued.

In the second wreck, Megan Humphries, 21, 107 Fairview Drive, climbed out of a window Thursday after her vehicle rolled over during a two-car accident at U.S. 61 South and Pemberton Square Boulevard.

Humphries was traveling north when a 2007 Buick Rendevous driven by Barbara Franklin, 70, 3878 Highway 577 South, Delhi, La., struck Humphries’ 1999 Toyota 4-Runner.

The Toyota rolled once, patrolman Bobby Jones said.

Jones said Franklin was making a left turn onto Pemberton Square Boulevard from the southbound lane of U.S. 61 when the vehicles collided.

Humphries and Franklin were alone and neither was taken by ambulance to a hospital.  Franklin was cited for failure to yield, Jones said.
