  • Bagdad woman killed in crash

    Arcelia Pena Lemus, 44, of Bagdad, was killed Friday morning in a car crash on Elmburg Road.

    The accident occurred as Lemus was on the way home from her job at the McDonald’s at Love’s Truck Stop, said Shelby County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Rice.

    Lemus ran off the road, flipping her car. Rice said she was not wearing a seat belt, and sustained fatal injuries when she was ejected from her car.

    He does not think drugs, alcohol nor speed were factors, and cites driver inattention as the reason for the single vehicle crash.
