On Friday night, June 27, THP Sgt. Ed Crouch headed to Highway 52 west after a 911 report came across the scanner of a  two-vehicle injury wreck at the Oak Dale intersection involving several people, including four juveniles and a baby.

According to Sgt. Crouch, 45-year-old Tina Sullivan Driver  was traveling west on Highway 52 in a 2013 silver Hyundai Elantra along with passenger 47-year-old Carlin Stone, both of Lafayette. “They were heading to work in Portland,” said Sgt. Crouch.

A red 1989 Chevrolet pickup was heading east on Highway 52 and attempted to turn onto Oak Dale Road in front of the automobile, where they collided. “There were four juveniles, including a baby in the truck,” said Crouch. 

“The driver was a juvenile, along with a female passenger, a male passenger, a baby and a male juvenile in the bed of the truck,” said the Sgt. “They were all restrained except for the teenager in the back.”

Three juveniles were transported to Skyline Hospital and the baby and other young person weren’t. Carlin Stone, who was a passenger in the Hyundai was carried to Vanderbilt Hospital.

That section of Highway 52 West was closed for a couple of hours and the traffic was re-routed.

Traffic citiations are pending.

The number one concern about the Fourth of July holiday is safety. To ensure the safety of you and your loved ones this holiday, the Lafayette Fire Department encourages everyone to adhere to the following fireworks safety tips:

  1. Sparklers, considered by many as “safe,” burn at very high temperatures, can easily ignite clothing and stay hot long after burning out. They are as dangerous as matches or lighters to children. Be sure to collect all burned out sparkler wires for disposal.
  2. Older children should only be permitted to use fireworks under close supervision. Never allow any running or horseplay.
  3. Use lighters with a child resistant feature. Keep matches and lighters out of children’s reach.
  4. Light fireworks outdoors, one at a time, on a clear, smooth, flat surface away from houses, dry leaves or grass, or flammable materials.
  5. Keep water nearby for emergencies and for pouring on misfired or spent fireworks.
  6. Never try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away.
  7. Be sure other people and pets are out of range.
  8. Never experiment with fireworks or ignite them in a glass or metal container. Do not attempt to make your own.
  9. Keep unused fireworks away from firing areas. Store them in a dry, cool place out of reach of children.
  10. Dispose of all fireworks properly.

According to Lafayette Fire Chief Keith Scruggs, there is at least one fire reported in Macon County every year involving Fourth of July fireworks, and he encourages residents to be aware of their surroundings. “There are a lot of dry areas that could catch fire,” he stated. “Surveying the area for potential fire hazards before igniting fireworks is the best way to prevent danger.”
