Driver of Chevy Trailblazer Escapes Injury in Crash

A 16 year old girl was airlifted Thursday night after being involved in a two vehicle traffic accident on South Congress Boulevard in front of Jewel's Market.

Laura Ann Sullivan was airlifted from the scene by a Life Flight helicopter ambulance and apparently flown to Vanderbilt Hospital.

Central dispatch received the call at 5:25 p.m.

Corporal Travis Bryant of the Smithville Police Department said Sullivan was a passenger of a 2009 Kia Spectra driven by 20 year old Andrea Ottinger. 16 year old Austin Wilmore was also a passenger.

According to witnesses, Ottinger was south on Highway 56 when she turned left attempting to enter the parking lot of Jewel's Market. As she turned, Ottinger's car crossed into the path of a northbound 2005 Chevy Trailblazer SUV, driven by 57 year old Edith Ella Lasser.

Neither Ottinger, Wilmore, or Lasser were seriously injured and apparently did not have to be transported to the hospital.

In addition to Smithville Police, members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department, DeKalb EMS, and local tow truck services were all on the scene.
