Monday Crash


A 1998 Honda, right, driven by Calvin Van Startum III, 17, of Newport,
was headed north on Cosby Highway, and making a left turn onto Hedrick
Drive, when the Toyota Rav4, left, driven by a woman from Oliver Springs,
that was headed south on Cosby Highway, collided almost head-on, on
Monday, Feb 4. The woman driver and a female passenger, whose names
were not available at press time, were taken by ambulance to Newport
Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, according to the Newport
Police Department. Startum's father, Calvin Startum II, drove his slightly
injured son to NMC for observation and possible treatment. The accident
occurred around 7:45 a.m. In the photo is Capt. Eric Herndon of the
