One Hurt in Friday Afternoon Crash on East Side of Centralia

April 9, 2017

One person was injured in a three-vehicle crash on East McCord Street at Edgewood Road on the east side of Centralia late Friday afternoon.

Centralia Police say 62-year-old Ada Poland of Fayetteville, Arkansas had stopped in the eastbound lane to make a left turn onto Edgewood Lane. A car driven by 48-year-old Ramonda Cope of England Road in Salem had stopped behind her. A car operated by 52-year-old Ralph Rutledge of State Route 161 in Centralia was unable to stop and crashed into the Cope car, pushing it into the Poland car. Poland was taken to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia for treatment of injuries. The other two drivers were not hurt.

Rutledge was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The crash occurred at 4:28 Friday afternoon.
