ALBANY — Believing his wife was in a GMC Sonoma, a Chevrolet Silverado driver smashed his pickup into it sending the Sonoma into a Ford Expedition after 8 p.m. Wednesday, an Albany Police Department report stated.

The Ford Expedition flipped from the impact and its driver, 41-year-old Tammie Anderson, was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman. Anderson was released from the hospital, she added. No other injuries were reported.

Donald Wayne Bynum, 48, the Silverado driver, was charged with aggravated stalking and three counts of aggravated assault, the report stated.

The wife was not in the car, Banks said. “She has a restraining order out against him,” she added.

Alfonzo Barge, 35, drove his Sonoma to the intersection of Jackson Street and Oglethorpe Boulevard where Bynum first drove into him, the report stated.

“Frightened by the incident, Barge stated that he drove west on West Highland in an attempt to get away,” Banks said. “(Bynum) continued to strike Barge’s vehicle as he traveled on Highland.”

Once Barge made it to West Highland Avenue at South Magnolia Street, Bynum forced Barge’s Sonoma into Anderson’s Expedition and it overturned, police said.
