Rolling car leaves minor injuries
Two men sustained minor injuries on Thursday when a vehicle they were working on in Newport, rolled away. Newport Patrol Officer Jordan Douglas said the 10:55 am incident occurred at a shop off Cooper Street, when a 1999 Oldsmobile owned by Rudene Swaggerty, Highway 321, Newport, slipped out of gear. Swaggerty and Daniel Gunter were doing repairs to the auto when it began rolling backward. The vehicle crossed Cooper Street and went down an embankment. The auto then crashed into a Newport Housing Authority apartment complex, where the rear of the auto was found inside a bedroom. The unidentified apartment renter was not injured, however, both Swaggerty and Gunter were examined by personnel with First Call EMS. Both declined treatment. Officer Douglas said damage to the apartment is estimated at $3,000.
