n 18-month old child and his father were injured last Thursday, April 1, just after 1 p.m. when their auto ran off Hwy. 315 about a mile east of the city limits. The driver, David Lee Taylor, told authorities at the scene that the uneven road over a recently installed culvert caused him to lose control of his Ford Focus. Taylor and his son, Randell Edward Taylor, were treated by emergency medical responders and transported by ambulance to Baptist Oxford. Taylor’s stepfather, Randy Donner, said that he had complained to DOT and others about the road conditions.
