Two Memphis Women Hurt When Pickup Overturns
Two Memphis women were injured in a one-vehicle accident on Highway 136 west of Memphis at 11:40 a.m. on Wednesday, November 26th.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Caroline K. Dennison, 63, of Memphis was westbound in a 1998 Ford pickup when the vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway. The truck returned to the roadway, overcorrected and traveled off the leftside of the roadway where it struck a ditch, before over turning end-over end and coming to rest on the passenger’s side facing eastbound in the ditch.
The Scotland County Rescue Squad used the Jaws of Life to extricate Dennison and a passenger in the vehicle, Tammie K. Mallett, 44, of Memphis.
Dennison suffered minor injuries while Mallett’s injuries were listed as moderate. Both women were transported by Scotland County Ambulance to Scotland County Memorial Hospital in Memphis.
Traffic was temporarily stopped on Highway 136.
The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the ambulance service, rescue squad, the Scotland County Sheriff’s Department and MODOT.
