    A man pulling a boat ran a stop sign at Pulaski and High Point roads Tuesday, and a woman who plowed into the boat and trailer remains in critical condition after the wreck.
    Georgia State Patrol Sr. Trooper T. Strickland said around 11:55 a.m., Christopher Sean Mullins, 48, Horizon’s bend, Portal, was traveling south on Highpoint Road when he ran the stop sign at Pulaski Road.
    Mullins was driving a white 2007 Ford F150 and pulling a boat and trailer, Strickland said. As he failed to stop at the stop sign, Kimberly K. Ellis Bolden, 40, Westover Drive,  was traveling west on Pulaski Road and struck the boat and trailer, he said. Then, her white 2005 Chevrolet venture minivan struck a gray 2004 F350, driven eastbound on Pulaski Highway by Paul Morgan Parrish, 24, Adamson Trail, Metter.
    Parrish suffered minor injuries requiring treatment at East Georgia Medical Center. He was released Tuesday afternoon. Mullins was not injured, but Bolden suffered a torn aorta and other critical injuries, according to state patrol Capt. Kirk McGlamery. She was flown by helicopter to Memorial Health University Medical Center, Strickland said.
    Charges are pending against Mullins, and the accident is under investigation by Strickland and the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team, he said.
    Pulaski and Highpoint roads were blocked from traffic while the wreckage was cleared, but the roads were opened for travel Tuesday afternoon around 4 p.m., Strickland said.
