At 1:50 p.m., a 36-year-old woman, driving a white Ford Flex, was traveling west on 100 North, failed to stop at the intersection stop sign, and collided with a white Ford F-150 truck, heading north on 200 West, Hurricane City Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said.

The collision caused the Ford Flex to veer off the road, hitting shrubbery and a residential home, he said, causing minor damage to the home.

The driver said she was unfamiliar with the area and didn’t see the stop sign, Buell said.

The driver of the Ford truck was a 46-year-old man who reported minor injuries, but refused transport to the hospital, Buell said.

The driver of the Ford Flex also had a 13-year-old female passenger; both the driver and passenger reported no injuries.

Those involved in the crash were all wearing seat belts.

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