NEWPORT-A Newport woman suffered an incapacitating injury on Wednesday, Dec. 5, when the vehicle she was driving north on North Street crossed the double lines and hit a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, the Newport Police Department reported.

Amy Jo Campbell, 42, of 675 Lamon Circle, in Newport, was transported by ambulance to Newport Medical Center following the collision, according to a report by Sgt. Justin Vinson of the NPD. A hospital spokesperson on Friday, Dec. 7, said she was not presently a patient at NMC.

The report stated that the 2012 Kia that Campbell was driving at about 7 a.m. almost hit a police cruiser that Sgt. Vinson was driving south on North Street.

Sgt. Vinson said he swerved to narrowly miss a collision, but that the Kia continued north in the south and hit head-on a Newport Utilities 2007 Ford F35 truck directly behind him that was driven by Eddie Dalton Jr., 37, of 389 Rock Hill Road, in Newport, according to the report.
