Car pulls from stop sign into pickup's path

MOULTRIE — Two people were injured in a two-vehicle accident Monday on First Street Northwest at Old Doerun Road.

Cory Harper, 1309 Northside Drive, and Ronald Lewis, 732 Joe Louis Ave., were both treated and released from Colquitt Regional Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Harper was driving a 1994 Ford Ranger pickup east on Old Doerun Road when a 2008 Pontiac G6 pulled from the stop sign on First Street Northwest and entered his path, authorities said. Harper said he tried to avoid the collision, but his front end struck the car on the driver’s side.

Ashanti Shamori Anderson, 1512 Old Doerun Road, the driver of the G6, said she stopped at the stop sign but didn’t see the pickup coming.

Anderson, who did not indicate she was hurt, was charged with failure to yield the right of way while turning left.
