An accident occurred in the late afternoon hours of Wednesday, Aug. 2, involving two vehicles nearby the Dollar General parking lot. According to Perry Police Officer, Wayne Schuttler, a vehicle was turning into the parking lot when a vehicle traveling southbound switched lanes, catching the turning vehicle.


“He was coming in here [Dollar General], and she was going southbound,” Schuttler said. “Two went to the hospital, a mother and daughter in the other vehicle.”


Schuttler said that the hospital visit was due to chest pain caused by the airbags that deployed.


Members of the Perry Police Department and Perry Fire Department were present at the site.


The Perry Chief will continue to update the story as more information is released.
