According to Officer Kevin Drew with the Rome Police Department:
Frances Strickland of Rome, driving a teal 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, ran a red light while turning onto North Broad Street from North Avenue.
Ava Wagner of Rome, driving a beige 1998 Nissan Frontier, was unable to stop and hit Stickland’s Oldsmobile. Wagner’s truck flipped, then hit a 2001 Honda Accord driven by Theda Camp of Rome. The Nissan came to rest on a silver 1998 Nissan Frontier in the parking lot of Smart Shop Antique Mall and Flea Market.
Joshua Richards of Rome, driving a beige Nissan Maxima, also struck the Oldsmobile. He told police he was unable to avoid the wreck.
Strickland and Sandy Sumner, a passenger in Wagner’s vehicle, were taken to FMC with injuries.
Drew said Strickland was cited for running a red light.
Strickland was still in the emergency room late Sunday evening, a FMC spokeswoman said. There was no record of Sumner’s treatment.
