City wreck injures two

Two elderly Marion women were sent to the hospital this morning as a result of injuries sustained in a one-vehicle crash at the edge of town just after 10 a.m.

Rev. Lucy Tedrick, a weekly columnist for The Crittenden Press, and a passenger had to be extricated by Crittenden County Rescue Squad before they could receive treatment. Both women were conscious as they were loaded into ambulances. According to witnesses, the passenger is believed to be Frances Rorer, a close friend of Tedrick's.

Tedrick was driving, heading south in Marion on Ky. 91 North (West Bellville Street) when it appears she ran off the right shoulder of the road in a curve and overcorrected, sending the vehicle off the left side of the roadway and overturning. The highway, just inside the city limit, was still wet from overnight rains.
