Police said a Limestone woman and her baby were taken to the hospital after she drove through a red light and struck another vehicle.
On Monday morning, at around 11:17 a.m., Johnson City police responded to the intersection of Boones Creek Road and Interstate 26's eastern on- and off-ramp after a two-car accident left Nicole M. DeWitt, 26, and her 1-year-old son with possible injuries.
According to the JCPD accident report, DeWitt and her son were traveling east in her 2008 Hyundai Accent on Boones Creek Road when she drove through a red light at the intersection and struck a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Raymond E. Wilson, 34, Telford.
Police said DeWitt and her son were taken to Johnson City Medical Center after sustaining "possible injuries," though she was wearing a seat belt and he was restrained in a child safety seat.
As of Monday evening, Mountain States Health Alliance Communications Manager Teresa Hicks said neither DeWitt or her child were listed as patients at JCMC. Police said Wilson sustained no injuries from the collision. Despite that, police said, neither vehicle was drivable after the collision.
The accident report did not indicate as to whether either party would receive any charges.
