Center Street crash


The driver of this overturned sedan was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment Wednesday afternoon.

The woman evidently pulled out onto Center Street in front of an on-coming truck and was “t-boned,” causing her car to overturn on its passenger side. She was trapped inside the vehicle for a number of minutes as crews from the City of Perry Fire Department and Doctors’ Memorial Hospital EMS worked to free her.

She was cited for violation of right-of-way. The driver was traveling the wrong way on Lafayette Street, a one-way street leading to the middle school, when she pulled onto Center Street.
