Both those occupants were minors and passengers of Mcnair’s.

While Scarbrough could not speculate as to the injury-status of those passengers, TRMC officials did confirm treating one of them and releasing them from the ICU.

They could not confirm receiving the other passenger.

The vehicle used to transport the two passengers was not involved in the accident and it was reported to dispatchers that one of the injured passengers might have been ejected from Mcnair’s vehicle in the accident.

According to the police report, the vehicle belonging to Mcnair sustained damage to both front quarter panels and the immediate front end while the Prism driven by Mclain was damaged on the passenger’s-side rear quarter panel. Mcnair, who was exiting the Dairy Queen parking lot, stated she did not see Mclain, who was traveling south on U.S. 231, the report reads.

No citations were issued in the incident.
