A three-vehicle accident on Highway 65 and Old Highway 9 last Thursday left a Judsonia man injured. Clinton Police Officer Jay Murdock said in his report that after speaking with witnesses he learned that a 2000 Chevrolet Impala driven by Dean Hall, 72, of Clinton was stopped in the northbound traffic lane to make a turn. A 1997 Ford Ranger driven by Jim Hale Jr., 44, of Judsonia pulled around the Impala and was struck by a 2011 Cadillac Escalade driven by Susan G. Johnson, 35, of Quitman, according to the report. The Ranger spun and flipped over, landing on its tires. Hale was transported by ambulance to Ozark Health Medical Center.
