Car flips on downtown street, two injured

NATCHEZ — A two-car wreck sent two people to the hospital and left one car upside down at the intersection of Monroe and Pearl streets in downtown Natchez Wednesday.

The Natchez Police Department reports that 32-year-old Lorman resident Monica Davis was allegedly driving her 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche the wrong way down a one-way street.

The other car, a 1992 Oldsmobile Delta 98, was being driven by 40-year-old Patricia Beverly and allegedly failed to yield to a stop sign.

Beverly’s car crashed into the side of Davis’ vehicle, causing the car to tumble over on to its roof.

Natchez resident Bill Slatter was in his car on Pearl Street as the wreck happened and said the damage was severe.

“It all happened so suddenly,” he said.

“It was hit on the side, and it just tumbled over once and rolled over onto the roof. The impact threw the car and tumbled it over.”

Slatter said witnesses to the accident helped Davis out of her car before police arrived.

“We all began to construct what had happened and were trying to figure out who was going in what direction,” he said.

Davis was transported to Natchez Regional Medical Center with glass in her throat, and was treated for minor injuries then released.

Beverly was transported to Natchez Community Hospital where she was treated and released for minor injuries.

According to the NPD, the accident is still under investigation because the evidence does not match the description given by both parties involved.
