Woman faces charges following accident on Dunlap

A Mid-South woman is in jail on $15,000 bond after a strange night on Dunlap Street.

Tra Norry is charged with vehicular assault, DUI, reckless driving, and several other moving violations.

Investigators say two men were walking down a sidewalk overnight along Dunlap Street when they were hit by Norry's car. 

The car eventually stopped in an open lot on Mosby, but the damage had already been done.

Wednesday, Joseph Tyms was in the hospital listed in fair condition, while John Turner was listed in critical condition.
 
"Could've been a whole lot worse. There could've been more injuries. The driver was not seriously injured. And also had passengers inside of the vehicle. So you're looking at several lives that could have been lost," Memphis Police Department spokesperson Monique Martin said.

Tra Norry is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. She could face additional charges depending on what happens with the two men in the hospital.
