Wrecks — During this past two weeks, police investigated four car crashes. Hayslip said three of them did cause bodily injury, but nobody was seriously injured. The fourth crash caused no bodily harm, he added. Two were on U.S. Hwy. 75, one on the entrance ramp, and the fourth was on a city street.
