NEWPORT-A violent two-vehicle collision on Cosby Highway
resulted in one of the vehicles coming very close to crashing into a gas pump
at a service station, on Tuesday, July 9, the Newport Police Department
Carl Fish, 78, of 2690 Sorrel Road, in Cosby, said he was
traveling west on Sequoyah Drive and approached a stop sign at Cosby Highway at
about 11:30 a.m., Sgt. Ricky Parton reported.
Fish, who was driving a 2002 Ford Taurus, said he looked
in both directions, didn't see any vehicles, so he proceeded into a traffic
lane on Cosby Highway, where a 2002 Toyota Camry driven by Pamela Faye Barnes,
62, of 275 Senior Way, in Newport, collided into the left side of Fish's
vehicle, causing his Ford to spin around in the road, the report stated.
