Pregnant woman taken to hospital after head-on crash


A portion of S. Caraway was closed after a head-on crash Thursday afternoon. The collision happened near the 6200-block of S. Caraway.

According to Corporal J. Vernon with Jonesboro police, a pickup truck was attempting to make a left-hand turn off Caraway into a construction area resulting in a head-on collision with a car.

A pregnant woman and a 4-year-old child were in the car, Vernon said. The woman was taken to a local hospital from the scene in stable condition. But the condition of the unborn child is still being evaluated.

The 4-year-old child sustained a broken leg in the crash, according to Vernon.

Two men in the truck were uninjured. The truck driver was cited for failure to yield.
