State patrol: Driver who caused wreck taking drugs

A woman seriously injured in a Wednesday evening wreck was charged with DUI-drugs after the two-vehicle crash north of Dalton, a Georgia State Patrol officer said.

Kimberly Yvonne Foxx, 40, of Dalton, was seen weaving in a green Saturn after pulling out of Dawnville Road and traveling north on Cleveland Highway around 6:15 p.m., said Senior Trooper E. Stanley Bonaparte.

 “A witness saw it happen,” Bonaparte said. “He said (Foxx) looked like she was distracted or sleepy. It was a head-on collision.”

Foxx was taken by air ambulance to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, he said. The driver of a gold Honda Accord that Foxx’s car collided with was Whitney Anne Poe, 19, of Dalton. She was taken to Hamilton Medical Center with minor injuries, Bonaparte said.

Foxx was in “fair” condition late Thursday afternoon, a spokesman with Erlanger said.
