A Nissan Maxima ran a red light and collided with a van at the intersection of Crestwood  Drive and North Navarro Street on Monday afternoon.

One woman was injured in a two-car wreck at the intersection of Crestwood Drive and North Navarro Street on Monday afternoon.

Katrina Flowers, 27, of Victoria ran a red light at the intersection causing her passenger car to collide with a van driven by Kay Autry, 67, of Victoria, who was turning on to Navarro, said Shane Wallace, senior traffic patrol.

The 27 year-old had four children in the car, including a 4-month-old who was in a car seat in the front seat.

"The air bag didn't deploy. She got lucky," said Wallace. He explained an air bag deploying could suffocate a baby in the front seat.

Three children, ages 2, 6 and 8, were in the back seat.

Wallace said the younger two children in the back were not properly restrained.

By state law children are required to use a car seat until the age of 7, Wallace said.

All children, however, did have a seatbelt.

Flowers was issued a citation for running the red light and not having child safety devices.

Autry was transported to Citizens Medical Center with complaints of pain in the neck, back and right arm.
