— A Randolph County church worker lost her legs in a wreck involving a church bus Saturday night, state troopers said.

A van belonging to Forest Park Baptist Church in Randleman was traveling south on U.S. Highway 311, near Archdale, around 11:20 p.m., Trooper G. Deabolt said. A 2008 Honda Civic, driven by David Jones Jr., 16, struck the church van, which ran off the road.

Tina Boyd, 36, a church supervisor, got out of the van and walked over to check on Jones. Another vehicle then struck her, Deabolt said.

Boyd was transported to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, but doctors could not save her legs, Deabolt said.

Jones was charged with failing to stop at a red light.

There was no immediate word on what happened to the vehicle that struck Boyd.
