A 97-year-old Atmore woman and a 44-year-old Perdido woman were injured around 2 p.m. Friday, November 15, when the vehicles they were driving collided at the intersection of South Main and West Horner streets.
Atmore Police Department reports indicate that the Atmore woman, Essie Drew Josey, was driving a Ford Focus eastbound on Horner. She pulled onto South Main from the stop sign at the intersection and into the path of a northbound Chevy Uplander driven by Elizabeth Stanley Cain of Perdido.
According to reports, Ms. Josey told investigating officers she did not see the Chevy until it was too late to avoid the collision, which sent the Ford skidding onto the sidewalk that fronts the yard of a South Main Street residence. The Chevy came to rest on the fringes of East Horner Street.
Both drivers were taken by ambulance to Atmore Community Hospital, where each was reportedly treated and released. Both vehicles sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the wreck site.
No charges were filed.
