3 sent to hospital in Lee County crash

Posted: Updated:

Three people, including an infant were sent to the hospital Friday morning after a crash knocked a business van onto its side at Forrester Parkway and Lover's Lane Road in Lee County.

State Troopers say 58 year old William Charles Thornton of Albany admitted he drove through the stop sign on Lover's Lane.

His Albany Air Conditioning and Heating van crossed into the path of this silver van headed west on Forrester.

The mini-van slammed into the work van and knocked it onto its side. Twenty-nine year old Carrie Ann Vennett was driving the van and her three month old baby was with her. Everyone involved in the wreck was buckled up and no one was seriously injured.

"The wreck looks worse than what the turn out is, it's bad enough to lose your vehicle but the main point and thing are the people who were driving. Everyone had their safety belt on? Yes," said Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office closed the eastbound side of Forrester Parkway while they cleaned up the debris. The State Patrol charged Thornton with failure to stop at a stop sign.
