MAIN STREET ACCIDENT: A Thayer woman, Daisy Mae Whiteside, 83, suffered moderate injuries Feb. 3 when the truck she was driving was hit head-on by another truck on Main Street in Mammoth Spring. Mammoth Spring Police Chief Michael Davis said the 1987 Chevrolet truck driven by Whiteside was hit by a 1998 Dodge truck driven by Daniel Smithee, 31, of Mammoth Spring. Davis said Smithee told him some type of mechanical malfunction caused him to lose control the vehicle. Davis said the truck crossed the center line of the street, crashing into the Whiteside vehicle. Whiteside was transported by Fulton County Ambulance to Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains. Davis said Smithee received minor injuries in the accident and it is not known if he sought medical attention. The accident is still under investigation.
