Two injured in wreck at Ben Jordan and Houston Highway

A man in his 70s and a woman in her 50s were taken to the hospital after a wreck at the intersection of Ben Jordan Street and Houston Highway about 8:20 p.m. Tuesday.

The man, who was driving a Ford pickup east on the highway, attempted to turn left onto Ben Jordan and failed to yield at the stoplight. He struck the woman driving a westbound Suzuki, said Lt. Jason Cross, with the Victoria Police Department.

Both were taken to Citizens Medical Center with what did not appear to be life-threatening injuries, Cross said.
