Jamestown Woman Escapes Injury After Wreck, Fire

A Jamestown woman escaped any serious injury just after 1:00 p.m. Sunday after she lost control of her vehicle, apparently trying to avoid hitting a dog in the road.    46 year old Shelly Dobbs was operating a 2004 Hyundai SUV, traveling on West Cumberland Avenue near Gaines Avenue, just off the Jamestown square when the incident occurred.   Jamestown Police Chief Jeff Kerns told WJRS News that Dobbs’ vehicle overturned and, upon impact, caught fire.   Dobbs was able to remove herself from the vehicle before the fire erupted.    She refused medical assistance at the scene.    Jamestown Fire Chief Jeff Landers told WJRS News his department was on the scene for about an hour to extinguish the fire and clear the scene.
