The accident happened at approximately 7:30 a.m. on 4200 South, Washington City Police Department spokesman Ed Kantor said.

“There was a Ford passenger car, female adult driver with a 5-year-old juvenile passenger was westbound on 4200 South. She rounded a curve, and for some reason struck a parked pickup truck that was parked at the curb.”

The airbags in the Ford passenger car did deploy, Kantor said, and the car had to be towed.

“Both her and the juvenile were checked by medical at the scene and released,” Kantor said, “so there was no injury.”

The force of the impact drove the pickup truck onto the curb, and it was towed from the scene as well.

The driver of the Ford passenger car was cited for careless driving, Kantor said.

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