SOUTH POINT — A four-car pileup in morning rush hour traffic on U.S. 52 resulted in one driver receiving non-incapacitating injuries.

Amy M. Hogsett, 51, of Barboursville, West Virginia, was taken to Cabell Huntington Hospital after the 2014 Toyota Avalon she was driving was struck in the rear by a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by John H. McCoy, 64, of Chesapeake, according to information from the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Ironton Post. An infant in Hogsett’s car was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The Monte Carlo was westbound and failed to stop, hitting the vehicle of Hogsett, according to the patrol.

McCoy was cited for failing to maintain an assured clear distance and failure to wear a safety belt, according to the patrol.
