Four women were injured Saturday night in a two-vehicle wreck in the 6400 block of Farm-to-Market Road 236 in Victoria.
Trooper Louie Veredeja of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the crash occurred about 7 p.m. Saturday.
The women were taken to Citizens Medical Center. Their conditions were unavailable late Saturday.
Veredeja said Cheyenne Autumn Shaw, 21, of Goliad, was driving a red Mercedes north on 236 and tried to make a left into a gas station.
He said Shaw turned into on-coming traffic and crashed into a black Chevy pickup.
Shaw suffered lacerations to her chest and neck area.
Veredeja said she was cited for turning when it was unsafe. Her passenger, an unidentified 20-year-old woman, had a broken ankle.
Destin Sparks, the pickup driver, complained of chest pains, the trooper said. Her front-seat passenger, an unidentified 27-year-old woman had abdominal pain. A 25-year-old man was in the back seat of the pickup and appeared to be uninjured.
Veredeja said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
