Around 5 p.m. on August 25 the Mississippi Highway Patrol responded to a wreck near the intersection of Highway 45 North and Jess Lyons Road, near the old Watermelon Patch building.
A 2002 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Wanda Cuevas, 62, of West Point was driving northbound on Highway 45 when a 2001 GMC Sonoma driven by Charles Kevil, 75, of Columbus pulled out of a nearby parking lot. Cuevas attempted to avoid Kevil, but was struck in the passenger side door. Her car spun around and ended up on the other side of the highway, pointing south.
Cuevas was transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle with minor injuries. Kevil was charged with DUI and driving without insurance.
