A two-vehicle crash on Knight Avenue at Driggers Lane Monday caused neck and back injury to one of the drivers, said Ware County Sheriff Randy Royal.
Alysia Lynette Drew, 42, of Central Avenue, complained of injury but chose to go for treatment by private vehicle, said Royal.
It was one of two injury accidents occurring in Ware County Monday about 12 hours apart.
Driving a 2001 Toyota Prius, Drew was westbound on Knight Avenue. Carolyn H. Taylor, 67, of Baxley, driving a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado, was southbound on Driggers Lane, attempting to make a turn onto Knight Avenue.
Royal said Taylor failed to yield the right-of-way after stopping at the stop sign that governs the intersection and made a left turn into the path of the Drew vehicle, striking the Drew vehicle in the door and causing moderate damage.
Deputy Daniel Guest investigated the 5:24 p.m. accident.
Meanwhile, a Waycross man was injured Monday morning when a sport utility vehicle crashed on Smith Drive near Fulford Road in the industrial park, said Royal.
Joshua Keyhea, 25, a passenger in the vehicle, had lacerations on his forearm. Royal said he was treated at the scene by Ware County Emergency Medical Technicians but chose to go by private vehicle to seek further treatment.
Thomas Lee Hicks Jr., 24, of Mary Street, was northbound on Smith Road, driving a 2005 Ford Expedition when an oncoming vehicle crossed both lanes of the road immediately in front of him. Royal said Hicks took evasive action to avoid a collision and his vehicle overturned onto the passenger side.
Royal said Hicks did not get a good look at the vehicle and had no description to give investigating Deputy Tony Youmans.
The driver was not injured in the 5:55 a.m. accident, said Royal.
