Woman hurt when car crashes into parked wood chip trailer

JASPER COUNTY - by Steve W Stewart/KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting Company

The volunteers of both the Jasper and East End Fire Departments worked for over an hour to rescue a Newton County woman following an early Wednesday morning accident. The crash occurred shortly before 4:00 at the intersection of Highway 190 East at Highway 63 East.

According to Officer Cody Christopher of the Jasper Police Department, a late model Dodge Avenger, driven by Wilma June Miller, 58, of Wiergate, was westbound on Highway 63 and approaching the intersection with Highway 190. Officer Christopher said the vehicle crossed the eastbound lane, and then entered the parking lot of the Mobil Convenience Store, where it slammed into a parked chip trailer.

Christopher said the woman told him that she was making a trip to WalMart in Jasper, and although he suspected that she may have fallen asleep at the wheel, she denied that, but she had no other explanation as to why the incident happened.

Firefighters used the Jaws-of-Life to cut away parts of the vehicle. Meanwhile, a heavy-duty forklift was brought from a nearby location to lift the fully loaded trailer just enough to allow rescuers more room to work with, and to ensure that the trailer wouldnt collapse any further onto the car.

The woman was extricated at about 5:15 and taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
