Wreck slows traffic in Decatur

No serious injuries were reported in a two-vehicle accident in south Decatur Tuesday morning. According to Decatur Police Chief Rex¬† Hoskins, a gray SUV driven by Lillian Doubrava, 17, of Decatur was northbound in the inside lane of Farm Road 51 when she realized she needed to make a right turn onto Bennett Road. Hoskins said Doubrava moved into the outside lane where she was struck from behind by a white SUV driven by Jessica Craig, 25, of Decatur. The impact caused Doubrava’s vehicle to roll once and come to rest on its top. A child and another adult in Craig’s vehicle were taken to Wise Regional Health System. Hoskins said the injuries were not life-threatening. The accident shut down one lane of northbound traffic on FM 51 while the accident scene was cleared.
