One woman was injured Friday in a wreck on Sam Houston Drive and Leary Lane.

Elvia Lara, 49, of Victoria, was turning south about 5:45 p.m. from Leary Lane onto Sam Houston Drive in her black Ford Expedition.

A silver Ford pickup driven north on Sam Houston Drive by Jon Garcia, 32, of Victoria, struck the SUV, said Victoria Police Officer Heather Rodriguez.

The driver's door of the Expedition was jammed, so emergency service personnel helped Lara out of the vehicle.

She was taken to Citizens Medical Center, where a hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.

Her two passengers, both minors, were uninjured, Rodriguez said.

No citations will be issued, but Garcia will be found at fault because he could not recall the traffic light color, Rodriguez said.
