A passenger was hospitalized after a two-vehicle collision on Tannery Road Saturday afternoon, according to local law enforcement officials.

Sheriff’s deputies said Theresa Coonrad, 44, of Lee Center, was eastbound at about 1:23 p.m. when she lost control of her 2013 Dodge Journey on a sharp curve.

Deputies said the Dodge crossed over into the oncoming lane and struck the driver’s side of a westbound 2002 Toyota Tundra, driven by Michael Ellis, 36, of Blossvale.

Deputies said a passenger inside Coonrad’s vehicle, 37-year-old Elizabeth Dupont, of Taberg, was treated at Rome Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.

Coonrad was ticketed for unreasonable speed, authorities stated.

She is scheduled to appear in City Court, the law enforcers added.
