A two-vehicle crash on Hwy. 531 around 11:45 a.m. Thursday, sent three persons to the hospital. A southbound gold 1997 Toyota Camry (background), driven by Tameka Moore of Springhill struck a Toyota pick-up truck driven by Jason Corey of Minden.
Corey was reportedly also southbound on the highway, waiting to turn onto Richard's Way when Moore's vehicle struck it from the rear with enough force to turn it over. Corey, Moore and a two-year-old child from her vehicle were transported with minor injuries and have been released from Minden Medical Center. Moore was cited for driving under suspension, following too closely and no insurance.
Around 11 a.m. Thursday, a Toyota Camry, driven by Charles Cupit of Bossier, was struck by a 2002 Dodge pick-up, driven by Leroy Lee of Minden at the intersection of Broadway and Sibley Road. Cupit's Toyota reportedly traveled through the traffic light heading south on Sibley Road, when Lee's pick-up truck, traveling east on Broadway, struck the Camry. Both drivers said their traffic light was green. A witness told Minden police officers the other cars southbound at the intersection were stopped when Cupit's vehicle (shown upside down) traveled through the intersection. Both subjects were uninjured or refused medical aid. No citations were issued.
