Oct 30, 2008

A Rome woman was hospitalized this evening after a van she was driving was struck by a trailer that broke loose from another vehicle on Garden Lakes Boulevard.

The 6 p.m. wreck occurred at the railroad track crossing, and was directly in front of Garden Lakes Elementary School.

According to Paul Mansfield of the Rome Police Department:

A trailer towed by a pick-up truck driven by Paul Abrams of Armuchee came loose from the vehicle as it was crossing the railroad tracks.

The loose trailer hit a GMC minvan driven by Shuaib Hanin Wasif of Rome.

Wasif was taken to Floyd Medical Center with minor inju-ries.

Mansfield said Abrams would be cited with not having proper safety restraints on the trailer.

The accident was cleared around 6:45 p.m.
