Havens was treated on scene by paramedics. She declined a ride in an ambulance for further medical treatment, but she told PeeDeePost.com that she had “a splitting headache” and high blood pressure. She said she might seek further medical treatment later if necessary. The adult male passenger in Havens’ Cadillac was uninjured. Wesley also avoided injury.
