A Thursday afternoon rollover in downtown Columbus sent two young women to the hospital and slowed traffic down to a crawl as the scene was cleared. Columbus Police and Firemen raced to the intersection of 5th Street North and Main in downtown Columbus shortly before 2 p.m. in response to a two car accident with injuries.
Jasmine Simone told Columbus Police she was headed North on 5th Street N. when she was clipped a Toyota Sequoia SUV in the driver’s rear tire. The SUV, driven by Aimee Musselwhite, immediately spun and then flipped over, coming to rest just West of the intersection.
Columbus Firemen worked to pull Musselwhite from the wreckage and she was placed on a backboard and brought to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle for treatment. The victim’s husband, Zack Musselwhite, was contacted by a Columbus Firefighter at his nearby barber shop in the 300 block of Main Street and quickly ran to the scene to check on his bride. Aimee Musselwhite was treated at the hospital and released a short time later.
Jasmine Simone was also transported to BMH-GT in stable condition and later released. A witness told Columbus Police she believed Musselwhite ran the red light on Main. Another witness told The Packet she thought Simone ran the red light. Columbus Police typically do not decide fault in accident reports, instead letting the parties (or their insurance companies) resolve the issue.
