Two injured in Grove Street crash

By Kay S. Pedrotti One of Barnesville’s most dangerous intersections saw another wreck with injuries last week on a foggy Friday morning. A report by Barnesville Police Dept. officer Michael Rainer shows that a vehicle driven by Bonnie Kitchings, 79, of Milner, was headed east on Grove, crossing the northbound lanes of Veterans Parkway, when she was struck by a northbound car driven by Winifred Pippin Calloway, 75, also of Milner. The impact knocked the Kitchings vehicle, a 1997 Chevrolet Suburban, into a car westbound on Grove Street stopped at the intersection. That car was driven by Terrell Selph, 33, of Barnesville, who was not injured. Both women were taken to Spalding Regional Medical Center, where Kitchings was treated for pain and bruising and released. The two were friends; Kitchings told The Herald Gazette that she got out of her car and held Calloway’s hand until medical units arrived. Kitchings said ‘Neither one of us saw the other.’ Calloway suffered bruised ribs, a broken kneecap and nose, severe eye injury, and her arm was broken in three places between the wrist and elbow, according to a family member. Calloway was taken to Atlanta Medical Center after stabilizing at SRMC, the family member said. Her eye injury has been attended by a plastic surgeon and she is scheduled for surgery on the arm next week. Calloway was to have gone home Monday or Tuesday, her family member said, commenting, ‘She’s a real trooper.’ No citations were listed on the report.
