One woman was injured in a car-truck crash in the 4200 block of North Laurent Street about 6:50 p.m. Friday.
Sharon Eckert, 64, of Victoria, was driving a black Hyundai Elantra south on North Laurent Street when she made a sudden left turn, causing her to strike a navy Sierra GMC pickup, said police officer Joshua Vaclavik.
Eckert turned to avoid striking a northbound white pickup that was turning left from North Laurent Street onto Polk Avenue, Vaclavik said.
The driver of the pickup, John Robles, 48, of Victoria, was uninjured, but Eckert was taken to DeTar Hospital Navarro. A hospital spokeswoman said she was in stable condition.
No citations were issued. The wreck remains under investigation, Vaclavik said.
