Never miss a local story.
Thompkins was driving a 2006 Dodge Dakota pickup west near 425 Sandefur Road when he crossed the center line, striking an eastbound 2007 Toyota Camry driven by Johnson, said Houston County sheriff’s Cpl. Ben Lashley.
Thompkins was partially ejected from the truck, and Thompkins and Johnson were extricated from their vehicles by Perry firefighters, Lashley said.
A passenger in the pickup, Tara Longbine, 34, of Kathleen, declined treatment, Lashley said.
