A 46-year-old Adairsville resident was killed Sunday evening in a three-vehicle accident in Gordon County.

According to reports, Paula Kelley died when a Mitsubishi Mirage, in which she was a passenger, and a Chevy Tahoe and Ford F150 were involved in a crash.

Eight others were injured, including a child that was airlifted to Erlanger in Chattanooga.

Tractor-trailer burns

Bartow County and Cartersville fire departments worked together Monday night when the cab of a tractor-trailer caught fire.

According to Capt. Abernathy with BCFD, the call came in about midnight from the fill station at Linde. The tractor-trailer was filling up with liquid nitrogen when a problem with the vehicle caused it to burn.

Abernathy said there were concerns about the liquid nitrogen but nothing at the company was damaged.

The vehicle suffered $18,000 in damage. There were no injuries reported.

Man arrested after tearing down 34 yards of fence

Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to a Vinnings Lane home after a driver in a pickup ripped yards of chain-link fence down.

According to the report, the complainant said a friend and her boyfriend came to the home of the complainant's mother and the boyfriend began making remarks. When she asked the man to leave, he allegedly backed a Chevy pickup into the fence, pulled forward and then backed up again, accelerating away and taking roughly 34 yards of fence with him.

The deputy located the man and the truck, which still had about 10 feet of fence caught in the undercarriage, at a Carrington Drive home. The man was arrested and charged with criminal damage to property in the second degree.
