UPDATE: Decatur Police respond to four-vehicle accident on Scott Boulevard
Decatur Police on Friday morning, July 15, responded to a four-vehicle accident on Scott Boulevard just east of Clairemont Avenue, where one vehicle was overturned.
“One driver is being transported to an area hospital for evaluation but is conscious and alert,” Lt. Jennifer Ross said. “There are no serious injuries reported at this time.”
A reader sent us a photo from the scene. She said, “This is why there has to be a turning lane to get into these neighborhoods. … They are saying she was pulling out of the neighborhood and someone clipped her coming over the hill.”
Ross provided additional information on Friday afternoon.
“This morning’s accident on Scott Boulevard involved a driver attempting to turn left out of a private driveway onto Scott Boulevard in front of two vehicles traveling eastbound,” she said. “One of the vehicles traveling eastbound was struck and overturned and the other was forced off of the roadway and down an embankment into the woods. The vehicle attempting to turn left spun out of control and struck a third vehicle travelling westbound on Scott Boulevard. One driver was transported to an area hospital for evaluation but no serious injuries were reported. The driver of the vehicle attempting to turn left was cited for failure to yield while entering the roadway.”
