The eyewitness mentioned that the truck “…must have been going 30-35 mph.” The damage sustained indicated a near-miss for the driver of the Ford, a young woman in her early 20’s.

Both drivers were in stable condition, with no passengers occupying either vehicle.

A resident who lives on the corner of the intersection noted that, ” Every day I see drivers trying to make the light here, often running the red just barely.”
