Accident at Industrial Park Road and 3rd Street
After stopping at the stop sign of the intersection of 3rd Street and Industrial Park Road, 17-year-old Brandon Landry of Birdseye entered the intersection, and his 2005 Toyota Scion was immediately struck by a 2006 Freightliner owned by Masterbrand and driven by 52-year-old William Sanders of Troy. Landry told authorities he did not see the Freightliner, and Sanders was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting Landry’s car. Neither driver was injured in the June 11, 7:13 p.m. accident, and while the Freightliner sustained less than $1,000 in damage, Landry’s car is believed to be a total loss.
Jasper Police responded to the intersection of 36th and Manor Drive at 11:11 p.m. on June 11, in reference to a possible intoxicated male lying in the road. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found 54-year-old Jacquelyn Sala attempting to pick up the male in a 2004 Honda Accord. According to police, the caller who tipped them off reported Sala had fallen to the ground while exiting the vehicle before police arrived. The Accord was left in reverse and began rolling backwards, but the caller was able to stop it. Upon further investigation officers determined Sala was under the influence of alcohol and prescription pills; she was taken to Memorial Hospital for a blood sample and later arrested for operating while intoxicated.
