Woman injured in accident

By Ed Brock

A man running a red light apparently led to an accident in which a Jonesboro woman was badly injured.

Nefriteria Glass, 22, was taken by air ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center with severe injuries, Clayton County police Capt. Jeff Turner said. Zachary Paul Stallings, 35, of Fayetteville, was charged with running a red light and having no proof of insurance in connection with the incident.

Around 1:25 p.m. Friday Glass, who was driving a Honda, was trying to turn onto Ga. Highway 138 from Kendrick Road when Stallings, driving a Chevrolet Silverado, ran a red light and hit her, Turner said.

"The Honda spun out and hit a third vehicle," Turner said.

Glass' mother, 44-year-old Cheryl McFashion, was also injured in the accident and taken to Southern Regional Medical Center, from which she was later taken to Atlanta Medical Center.

The driver of the third car, Jimmy Wayne Shepherd, 54, of Morrow was not badly injured but was taken to SRMC as a precaution due to his having a heart condition, Turner said.

Stallings was not injured and was released after receiving a copy of the charges against him.
