Emergency workers were dispatched to the 9000 block of Wingfield Church Road (HWY 1749) where a 2007 Ford sedan, driven by Clara Natasha Lindsey (30) of Brownsville had crashed. Authorities reported that according to scene evidence, the car had been traveling north on 1749 when it exited the right side of the roadway.
