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.

transported by ambulance to Newport Medical Center following the collision,
according to a report by Sgt. Justin Vinson of the NPD. A hospital spokesperson
