Man jailed in injury crash

Laymond Norris, 59, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of charges including driving with a revoked license as a habitual traffic offender, reckless driving and failure to remain at the scene of an accident, after witnesses said a Ford F150 pickup he was driving was observed several times running over the right curb of U.S. Highway 50, after entering the roadway via Riverside Parkway, according to an arrest affidavit.

The truck eventually struck a concrete barrier on the right side, which caused the truck to hit a vehicle in the left lane.

A man, his pregnant wife and three children suffered minor injuries in the other vehicle.

Norris was arrested at his home in the 2700 block of B 1/2 Road. Norris’ license was revoked bsecause of an alcohol or drug-related driving conviction, the affidavit said.
