Sabrina Green, 2801 Franklin 20, Spruce Pine, died from injuries sustained in an accident that happened at 12:38 p.m. on Alabama 13 at Franklin 20.  Green was driving a 1992 Honda Accord traveling west on Franklin 20 and was apparently attempting to cross Alabama 13 when the accident happened. Reports indicate her car collided with a 1992 Ford F-250 truck driven by Thomas Boyles, 25, of Phil Campbell, who was not injured. Troopers said Boyles was traveling southbound on Alabama 13, hauling two commercial lawn mowers, when his truck hit Green’s car in the passenger’s side door. Emergency officials at the scene said the impact was so severe that it pushed the passenger’s side door into the driver’s side of the car. Green was removed from her car by Emergency personnel at the scene and medical officials began performing CPR on her imediately as she was transported to Russellville Hospital where she died a short time later. “She was a very concerned parent and was very supportive of her children,” said Jackie Ergle, principal at Phil Campbell Elementary School, where Green’s sons attended.”Her family were all very close,” Ergle added. “I know her sister’s home was lost by fire earlier this year, and Sabrina was very involved in trying to help her sister get through the tragedy.” Jim Poss is pastor of Spruce Pine Baptist Church, which is just a few feet from where Green lived. He said her sons attended his church and their mother would come with them at times.”It’s just a very tragic situation. It’s so sad, so hard on the family, especially with the children,” Poss said. Green is the 17th person to die in traffic accidents this year in the northwest Alabama area and the southern Tennessee counties of Wayne and Lawrence. Additional Information: Times Daily
