Toddler among several injured in head-on collision

JASPER COUNTY - by Steve W. Stewart - Five people, including a toddler, were injured in a two vehicle head-on collision Saturday afternoon in northeast Jasper County. The crash occurred shortly before 5:00 on Highway 190 East, in the Holly Springs Community.

According to State Trooper Scott Folmar, a 1997 Ford F-150 pickup truck, driven by Phillip Locke, 32, of Jasper, was eastbound on Highway 190, while a 2009 Chevrolet Suburban, driven by Kristen Young, 25, of Douglass, was westbound on Highway 190.

Trooper Folmar said witnesses told him that Locke attempted to turn his truck into a private driveway, and turned into the path of Young's SUV, causing the vehicles to collide head-on.

The impact pushed the truck about 100 feet backwards, and sent the SUV off of the highway and into the front yard of a house.

Injured in the crash were:

Phillip Locke, 32, of Jasper - driver of the Ford pickup truck

Thomas Locke, 68, of Jasper - passenger in the Ford pickup truck

Kristen Young, 25, of Douglass - driver of the Chevrolet SUV

Pamela Russell, 48, of Douglass - passenger in the Chevrolet SUV

Kasen Young, 3, of Douglass - passenger in the Chevrolet SUV

All of the victims were taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital where they were, at last word, undergoing treatment.

The crash occurred during a heavy rainstorm, however, weather was not believed to be a factor.
