Windows at two downtown businesses were broken as the result of an early morning accident at 3:45 a.m. Friday, August 23 on Main St. in Mount Vernon.
James Ray Stewart, age 56 of Winfield, was traveling west on Main St. in Mount Vernon in his 1994 GMC Jimmy when he fell asleep at the wheel of the vehicle. When Mr. Stewart woke up, he pushed his accelerator instead of the brake.
