Woman nabbed here transferred to Hinds

A Jackson woman was transferred to the Hinds County Jail Saturday after being arrested by Vicksburg Police on Friday for attempting to utter a forgery.

Sharon Holloway, 26, 403 Willaman St., spent Friday night in the Warren County Jail on a $2,500 bond and a hold by Hinds County officials.

Utica man cited after wrecking car

A Utica man was cited for no license and no insurance following a single car wreck in the 2100 block of Fisher Ferry Road Friday afternoon, said Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace.

A 1997 Ford Thunderbird driven by Joseph Carmoney, 18, 2176 Fisher Ferry Road, was traveling north when it veered off the roadway and struck a tree at approximately 4:30 p.m., said Pace. With damage to the vehicle and a flat tire, Carmoney drove the car to the nearby Super Junior convenience store at Fisher Ferry and Nailor roads where deputies responded to the call.

Camoney was taken to River Region Medical Center for an injury to his arm, said Pace, while the lone passenger, his mother, 45-year-old Betty M. Carmoney, was uninjured. A River Region spokesman said Carmoney left the hospital without receiving treatment. Pace said the cause of the wreck was unknown.

The wreck was one of 10 reported in Warren County on Friday, said Pace, and the only one with reported injuries.

Slick roads and steady showers may have contributed to the wrecks. Vicksburg received 1.98 inches of rain on Friday, bringing the monthly total to 14.06 inches — more than three times the monthly average of 3.8 inches.
