Truck Driver charged in Lee County wreck

August 22, 2005

A Lee County woman remains in critical condition from a crash with a tractor trailer rig.

31-year old Kelly Henderson pulled off Fussell Road onto Highway 82 west of Albany yesterday and was hit by  a tractor trailer.

Troopers say the truck driver, Dwayne Pittman of Columbus, ran the red light and crashed into Henderson's SUV.

The big rig then jackknifed and slammed into another car on Fussell Road.  No one in that car was seriously injured.

Pittman is charged with failure to obey a traffic signal.

Kelly Henderson is in the surgical intensive care unit of an Albany hospital.
