Minor injuries reported in head-on collision, one driver cited

WASHINGTON – A teenager suffered minor injuries after a two-vehicle head-on collision last night under the off ramp on exit 10.
A 17-year-old female told officers she had soreness in her chest, but both drivers refused medical assistance. Ed Kantor, law enforcement division chief for Washington City Public Safety, said the collision occurred around 10:15 p.m.
A 20-year-old female driving a white Toyota passenger vehicle was headed south on Green Springs Drive when she collided with the 17-year-old female driving a black Mitsubishi passenger vehicle, who was headed north on Green Springs Drive and trying to turn left onto the southbound ramp of Interstate-15.
The 20-year-old driver said the other vehicle ran a red light. Officers are still investigating who was at fault for the accident, however. The 20-year-old driver was cited for driving on a suspended license, which was previously suspended for an alcohol-related incident, Kantor said. The head-on collision was not alcohol related, he said.
Kantor said the accident was not completely weather-related, but it may have been a contributing factor.
A flash flood watch is in effect through Wednesday evening.
