■ An Alexander woman was injured and three vehicles sustained an estimated $16,000 in property damage in a late afternoon collision in the 8000 block of Sheridan, Sgt. Sandy Castleberry wrote in an accident report.

One of the three drivers was charged with numerous traffic violations, including leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, and possession of controlled substances, Sgt. Sandy Castleberry said.

The officer said Carolyn S. Graham of Alexander, driver of an eastbound 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV, was taken by ambulance to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for treatment of multiple injuries.

Graham was quoted as saying she was stopped for traffic in front of McDonald’s, 8012 Sheridan, when the SUV was struck from the rear by a gold Saturn without license plates, adding the vehicle had followed her from Sheridan, remaining close to the rear of the SUV.

After hitting the Tahoe, the Saturn then stuck a westbound 2000 Dodge Caravan driven by Robyn M. Crippen of 505 Green Oaks Lane, White Hall. The van had stopped in the center turn lane.

Crippen told Castleberry the Saturn did not stop and continued eastbound.

Patrolman Robert Rogers said he found a damaged gold 2000 Saturn SL occupied by Lindsey C. Pratt, 19, of 2055 Grant Road 7, Sheridan, stopped behind the Redwood Inn, 8006 Sheridan Road.

Castleberry said Pratt was issued citations for failure to register the car, no proof of liability insurance, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an injury accident.

Pratt allegedly had a syringe containing a red liquid that field tested positive for methamphetamine, Tri-County Drug Task Force Investigator Christopher Drye said Friday during a court hearing.

Drye said during a search of Pratt’s wallet, police allegedly found the syringe and one and-a-half Xanax tablets.

Jefferson County District Judge John Kearney set a court appearance $5,000 bond for Pratt after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
