“We had two pickup trucks, a GMC and a Toyota Tacoma, they were both eastbound on Red Hills Parkway there, approaching Green Springs, about 12:15,” Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said. “Traffic was backed up quite a ways for the traffic light. The Toyota Tacoma stopped for traffic, the GMC failed to stop and struck the Tacoma in the back.”

A Washington City Fire Department crew witnessed the accident and were on scene almost immediately.

The GMC was driven by an adult male with no passengers and the Toyota was driven by an adult male with two passengers. Airbags were not deployed in either vehicle. No injuries were reported, Kantor said.

The driver of the GMC was issued a citation for following too closely.

Washington City Police Department and Washington City Fire and Emergency Services responded to the incident.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
