A two-vehicle collision fatally injured an Enterprise woman Wednesday night and caused three others to be hospitalized according to a statement by the Alabama Department of Public Safety.
Jerelene Clark, 60, was pronounced dead by Coffee County Coroner Robert Preachers, after an initial investigation determined a 1992 Ford Taurus driven by 25-year-old Sterling Garrett of Brundidge, struck her vehicle.
Clark was driving north on Alabama Highway 167 in a 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor with her two daughters, Felicia and Kathleen Clark. Garrett reportedly failed to yield the right of way to Clark at the intersection of County Road 114 and Alabama Highway 167 where the collision occurred.
Garrett and Felicia Clark were both transported to Troy Regional Medical Center and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Garrett’s passenger, JulieAnn Parker, 24, also of Brundidge, was taken to Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan and was listed under guarded condition.
Alabama State Troopers are still investigating the early-evening crash that occurred four miles north of Enterprise city limits.
