Wreck causes chain reaction collisions

July 31, 2003

Lee County-- A community leader in Lee County remains in critical condition  after being injured in a wreck on a rain-slicked road Wednesday afternoon. 

State Troopers say 81-year-old Ida Chambers did not yield to oncoming traffic on Highway 19. A Ford Ranger driven by 20-year-old Brian Harper slammed into her car.

Chambers was admitted to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

Not far down the road, two vehicles collided as traffic was slowing for the first accident. State Troopers won't release information on that accident yet.

Then, a few hundred yards from there, another car slid off the road. There were no serious injuries in that crash.
