KILJ is currently looking into two possibly three accidents that occurred Tuesday. At about 8:00 am there was a report of an accident on Grand Avenue in front of the Mt. Pleasant High School. We now have the details from Mt. Pleasant Police. A vehicle driven by Maui Whaley of Mt. Pleasant was Eastbound on Harvest Drive and had stopped for the stop sign at the intersection with Grand Avenue. Maui then continued East across Grand Avenue failing to observe a truck driven by Lindsey Moeller that was traveling north on Grand Ave. Maui pulled into the path of the truck causing the collision. there were reports of minor injuries to both drivers. Maui was cited for failing to yield form a stop sign.
And just after 1:30 pm there was a rollover accident south of Mt. Pleasant in the northbound lanes of Hwy 218. One person was reported to be injured and taken by air from HCHC to University Hospitals. Also, we received information of a possible two vehicle accident on North Grand Avenue near Pilot.
