WASHINGTON CITY— A crash on Telegraph Road Saturday morning caused major damage to both vehicles and sent one woman to the hospital.
Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said that at about 9 a.m., a red Ford pickup truck with a loaded ATV trailer was pulling out of a subdivision at 1150 E. Telegraph Road when it was struck broadside by a black Mazda Protegé sedan. The violent collision caused the truck to roll over on its right side, leaving the trailer standing upright.
No serious injuries were reported as a result of the accident, Kantor said. One woman in the Mazda was taken by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center for observation.
The Mazda had severe front-end damage and had to be towed from the scene. The Ford had damage to both sides and was also towed. Traffic was affected on Telegraph Road for about 30 minutes.
All passengers were wearing their seat belts, Kantor said , and airbags were visible in the Mazda at the scene.
The driver of the Ford pickup was cited for failure to yield to oncoming traffic. Armat Storage, just south of the accident scene, caught the accident on one of its security cameras.
