A three-vehicle accident that happened Tuesday morning closed down both north and southbound lanes of 441S.
Doug Ledford, driver of a white F150 Ford truck, ran the stop sign at Belle Dowdle Rd., entering oncoming traffic on 441. He crossed the road hitting a red Chevy Cobalt driven by April West who then hit a white Lexus.
After hitting West, Ledford crossed back over into the southbound lane resting on the curb. The Cobalt came to rest in a ditch on the northbound side of 441 and the Lexus stopped in the northbound lane.
West was transported to Mission Memorial via MAMA. Ledford was charged with running a stop sign.
