Driving Adjusting Dress Causes Collision

A section of Highway 42 near Interstate 40 was closed for an hour Thursday following a near head-on collision on a bridge crossing Swift Creek. The driver of one of the vehicles, Rachael Holley, 33, of Clayton, told troopers she was adjusting her dress, caught under her shoe, when she ran off the right side of the highway striking the bridge railing. Her Pontiac veered across the roadway and crashed into a Dodge truck. The truck drivers name and condition was not immediately released. Trooper D.L. Braswell charged Holley with reckless driving. The Department of Transportation inspected the bridge for damage before allowing it to be reopened to traffic. 50-210 EMS and Cleveland Fire also responded to the scene.
