Car crashes against Barnes Run hillside
Authorities said the woman appeared to be partially out of the vehicle, when it
crashed against a hillside near the Orris Meadows residence. Firemen and EMS
personnel extracted the woman from the vehicle.
Another female occupant was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center for
treatment of injuries.
The deceased woman was reportedly not the driver of the vehicle, although that

Two other individuals, tentatively identified as Melinda Hicks of Cabot Station and
Holly Cunningham of Barnes Run, were identified as being in the vehicle.
