Early morning wreck blocks north Abany, south Lee County traffic

Minor injuries reported in wreck at Dougherty-Lee County line

LEESBURG — A two-vehicle accident injured one person Wednesday and briefly tied up traffic on U.S. Highway 19 North, officials say.

Lewis Harris, chief deputy with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, said that around 6 a.m. a black Ford Exposition traveling north on U.S. Highway 19 attempted a left turn onto Ledo Road. In the execution of the turn, Harris said, the Exposition entered into the path of a motorist driving a Chrysler 300 and a collision occurred.

The unidentified driver of the Expedition was charged as being at fault in what Harris called a relatively minor accident. According to Harris, following the incident, an occupant of one of the vehicles was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for observation.
