HURRICANE — Eastbound traffic was diverted to one lane after a collision occurred Friday afternoon at the intersection of State Street and Main Street in Hurricane.
At about 3 p.m., a black 1996 Honda Accord, driven by a juvenile female and carrying two child passengers, was traveling eastbound on State Street. At the same time, a maroon 2005 Chrysler Town & Country minivan, traveling westbound, was making a left-hand turn onto Main Street to head southbound when it collided with the Accord in the intersection of Main Street and State Street, Hurricane Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said.
Witnesses stated the Honda was speeding faster than the posted speed limit, Buell said. Other factors that caused the collision are still under investigation.
Eastbound traffic was diverted to one lane for about 40 minutes.
Minor injuries were reported but no one was transported to the hospital. All passengers were reportedly wearing seat belts, which likely helped minimize the injuries, Buell said.
Both vehicles were towed. The driver of the Accord was issued a citation for speeding.
