Herndon man injured in traffic accident

A side-swipe collision Tuesday evening on Lafayette Road injured a Herndon man.

The report from Christian County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jack Rowlands says 65-year old James Stevenson of Herndon was headed north near Lovers Lane when he crossed into the  path of a southbound tractor-trailer operated by Timmy Stokes of Pembroke.

Stokes got over the right as much as he could, but could not avoid a collision. Stevenson’s car struck the side of Stokes’ semi and trailer tires.

EMS took Stevenson to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
