House fire

A Five Points woman was airlifted following a two-vehicle accident in front of Walmart on Sunday eve­ning.

According to the report from Roanoke Police Department, Matthew Wylie Kisor, 22, of Auburn was heading north in a 2009 Jeep Wrangler. When he got to the intersection in front of Walmart, a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo turned in front of him and they collided.

The driver of the Monte Carlo, Kate Lynn Sudduth, 16, of Five Points said she did not see the Jeep coming. The officer asked if she saw the green arrow light or the regular green light, but Sudduth didn’t remember.

Sudduth’s passenger, Amy Leigh Goode, 36, was taken by helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Sudduth and Kisor were taken by ambulance to Tanner East Alabama Medical Center.

A house on Satterwhite Street in Roanoke was almost completely engulfed in flames Monday before firefighters arrived quickly to put it out. According to offi­cials on site the house was not occupied during the fire.

A man was robbed at gunpoint by someone he had given a ride.
