Collision on US 82

An SUV damaged in an accident rests at the intersection of Viola B. Sanders Drive and U.S. 82 at Walmart after a collision there Friday. Annie Washington, an eyewitness, said the vehicle was hit by an 18-wheeler that ran a red light. The collision totaled the front of the SUV, and the truck, with fuel leaking from its underbelly, continued traveling west along U.S. 82. The truck was eventually stopped west of the scene at the U.S.82-49 intersection. Greenwood Police Chief Ray Moore said the truck driver, Joshua Kalil Lyles, 25, 900 Robert D. Gray St., Shelby, was charged with leaving the scene of the accident and was released on bond. Moore said Friday afternoon that he did not yet have information about the other driver.
