Emergency personnel assist Melissa K. Stewart, 18, of Salem after she was involved in a collision with Rodney D. Cope, 31, of Jonesboro at the intersections of highways 9 and 62 Oct. 18. Stewart and Cope were traveling in opposite lanes along Highway 62 when the wreck occurred, according to authorities. Salem Police Chief Al Roork said Stewart was east bound and attempted to turn left on Highway 9N when she failed to yield on a green light and hit Cope head on as he was traveling in the west bound lane. Upon impact, Cope's vehicle turned over and landed on the passenger's side at the corner of the intersecting highways.
