Two Bruce women are in critical condition at Baptist Hospital in Oxford after a car accident on Hwy. 9 north of Bruce Wednesday afternoon.
Mary Jo Doler and her daughter Lisa Giompoletti were both transported by ambulance from the scene of the accident. Giompoletti’s daughter was also a passenger in the car and was transported to the hospital. Her injuries were not believed to be severe.
The car reportedly hydroplaned, slamming into the line of trees on the roadside.
Bruce and Chickenbone EMRs responded to the scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
The Journal will update the victims’ condition as news becomes available.
There was also a wreck in Big Creek earlier today involving a “rollover.” Big Creek EMRs reported there were no injuries from that crash.
