She was rear-ended by a Hyundai Accent driven by Kersey Young, who Young said failed to yield the right-of-way.

Carwell and Kersey Young were both taken to River Region.

“He (Kersey Young) couldn’t really move,” Officer Young said. “I don’t know if he’s got any kind of serious injuries. I will find that out when I get to the hospital. Mrs. Carwell was complaining of leg and back pains. She was also taken to the hospital.”

Officer Young said Kersey Young will be issued a citation for failing to yield the right-of-way.
