— Three people were injured in a Friday morning accident at the junction of U.S. Highways 56 and 59.

They suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, according to Sgt. Steve Lewis, spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff's office.

Albert Aldridge, 65, Pomona, was driving a 2010 Toyota Camry north on U.S. 59 and stopped at the four-way stop sign. Marcia Funk, 56, Williamsburg, who also was headed north in a 2002 Buick Century, didn’t stop at the stop sign and slammed into the back of Aldridge's car, said Lewis. Aldridge's 66-year-old wife, Joyce, was injured and was being held for observation at LMH. The two drivers were treated and released, according to a LMH spokesperson.

Funk was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign.
