At around 10:30 Thursday morning – there was yet another two-vehicle wreck at the red light in front of the Centre Walmart on West Main Street.
That collision involved two pickup trucks with one receiving moderate and the other major, damage – and early reports indicate that at least one person was shaken up in the mishap.
This area has been the site of multiple wrecks over the last few years, and part of the problem at present, MAY lie in the misconception that the yellow flashing light which is positioned at the entrance to the parking lot, gives you the right-of-way.
It does NOT. It is a CAUTION light. If something is coming, you must yield.
Bear in mind, safety first. Be alert and watch for other vehicles at all times especially in busy areas such as that intersection.
Those responding to the scene included Centre Police and Fire units along with Floyd EMS.
We’ll have additional information once that accident report is released by the Centre Police Department.
