According to witnesses at the scene a driver sped across an open field from North Main Street crossing to Ashley Street in the northern section of town. One witness said the driver had injuries that required transfer to an out-of-town hospital by Lifeflight.

The identity of the driver was not made available this evening, but Dean said the male driver was believed to be alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
