Three people were transported to the hospital after a collision Wednesday on U.S. 59 and Hill Street.
Margie Quintero, 49, of Houston, was traveling southwest in a black Chevy Equinox on U.S. 59 when she collided with Cecilia Caballero, 72, of Victoria, traveling northwest on Hill Street in a white Toyota Corolla, according to Department of Public Safety Trooper Louie Verdeja.
The accident was witnessed by Marcos Sanchez, 38, and Alfredo Salazar Sr., 80, of Victoria, while they were laying a drainage pipe north of U.S. Highway 59 on Hill Street. Sanchez called 911 at 1:45 p.m.
Caballero, her passenger Juan Caballero, 75, of Victoria, and Quintero were all transported to Citizens Medical Center. Quintero was treated and released but the Caballeros were still in the emergency room in stable condition at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Verdeja said Caballero will be cited with failure to yield the right of way, the trooper said.
