Local woman injured in wreck

Lashley Car(Franklin) — A Heard County woman was life-flighted to Columbus Medical Center Wednesday afternoon after a serious car crash on HWY 100 near Franklin.

According to GSP reports, 39-year-old Linda Marie Lashley had just turned onto HWY 100 from HWY 27 and was traveling towards Corinth in a 1996 Altima when she lost control of the vehicle and left the roadway on the right hand side before traveling down an embankment and crashing into an oak tree.

Doug Lashley, the victim’s husband stated that slick conditions on the roadway may have contributed to the crash although his wife is having difficulty remembering well.

Despite her very serious injuries which include a crushed right ankle and left wrist, Doug Lashley states that his wife, the mother of seven children was “very fortunate” to have survived. He says that doctors estimate her recovery could take well over a year.

Doctors have already completed surgery on her wrist and she is expected to have another major surgery on her ankle in the coming weeks.

“It is going to take a long time for my wife to heal, but I’m glad she is here to heal,” said Doug Lashley. “I keep telling her that the pain is just God’s way to let you know that you are still alive.”

Mrs. Lashley, who grew up in the Ephesus Community, is employed by Wal-Mart in Carrollton.
