Three passengers hurt
on Royall Avenue
A driver and three passengers in the other car, including a 3-year-old child, were injured in a collision around midnight Saturday on Royall Avenue.
The driver, Kayla Lashawn Howard of East Walnut Street, and the other vehicle's passengers, Shiquita McArthur, 22, and Zaikira McArthur, 3, both of Fairview Circle, and Jermaine Hairston, 20, of another address on Fairview Circle, were treated and released at Wayne Memorial Hospital.
Goldsboro police charged Kimberly Lenora Crudup of Maple Street with careless and reckless driving and failure to carry after the collision, which occurred between the Wayne County School Administration Offices and the fire station. Ms. Crudup was going west when she lost control of her 2005 Chevrolet and veered into the eastbound lane occupied by a 2003 Ford driven by Ms. Howard, according to the report. The Chevrolet struck the Ford's rear quarter panel and went down the embankment to the railroad tracks.
Damage was estimated at $3,200 to the Chevrolet and $2,000 to the Ford.
