One injured in foggy crash

Ada — A Tupelo woman was injured in a two-vehicle wreck near Union  Valley Thursday.

The wreck occurred at the intersection of state Highway 1 and County Road 1600 just after noon. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Pope said 40-year-old Maria Garza De Garcia of Rio Grande City, Texas, was driving a Dodge Ram pickup east on SH1 when she slowed to make a right turn onto CR 1600.

Rachel Huff, 30, Tupelo, was also driving east in a 2002 Ford Mustang when she approached the pickup from behind. Thinking the pickup was turning left, Huff took evasive action driving onto the right shoulder and crashed into the passenger side rear corner of the pickup, according to Pope.

Huff and a five-year-old passenger were taken by Mercy EMS to Mercy Hospital Ada. Huff was suffering low back pain and right knee pain, according to radio traffic. The child was only taken as a precaution. De Garcia and four passengers in the pickup were not injured.

Pope said Huff was issued a citation for driving off the roadway when overtaking on the right.
