Police: Driver ignored stop sign, caused collision

ALEXANDRIA — Police believe a disregarded stop sign led to a two-vehicle accident in the northern part of the county Wednesday morning.

According to a press release from Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson, Ashley J. Smith, 27, of Summitville was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Impala southbound on County Road 200 East and ran a stop sign at the intersection with County Road 1400 North at about 8 a.m. The Impala was struck on the driver's side by a westbound 2004 Pontiac Montana van driven by 45-year-old Julie G. Garringer of Summitville.

According to the release, the Montana came to a stop in the intersection and the Impala came to a stop partially off the roadway after striking a fence south of the intersection.

According to the investigating officer, Garringer was wearing a seat belt and complained of pain to her knees, but she refused treatment at the scene. Smith was transported by an Alexandria ambulance to Anderson Community Hospital for possible hip and abdominal injuries. Smith was not wearing a seat belt and disregarded the stop sign, according to the release.

MCSD was assisted at the scene by Alexandria Police, Fire and Medics.
