Two Injured After Woman Stops For Deer

A Harrisonville woman has been cited by state police for stopping on roadways after she stopped her vehicle on Buck Road to watch a deer on the side of the Taylor Township roadway.

Ann A. Sipes, 71, will be cited through Magisterial District Judge Devin Horne in connection with the alleged incident on Wednesday, July 20. Police investigators said at 10:40 a.m. Sipes stopped in the center of the road to watch the deer when her car was struck by an oncoming 2002 Dodge Durango that crested a hill at a speed of 25 miles per hour.

The driver of the Durango, Carrie D. Hoover, 28, of Hustontown, was unable to bring her vehicle to a stop before colliding with Sipes’ car, police added.

Sipes sustained moderate injuries and was taken to Fulton County Medical Center for treatment. Hoover escaped harm, but her frontseat passenger, a 9-year-old boy, also of Hustontown, suffered minor injuries. Neither Hoover or her passenger were wearing seat belts. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
