A driver ran a red light, causing a two-vehicle crash at a Victoria intersection Tuesday morning, police said.
Patricia Jeansonne, 63, was driving south on North Ben Wilson Street when she disregarded a red light at the intersection with East Red River Street, said Senior Police Officer Bryan Knief.
Her white Buick Encore then struck a red pickup driven by Victoria resident Jessie Gonzales, 66, as the man attempted a left turn onto Red River Street.
Gonzales had the right of way because of a green-arrow signal at the time of the crash, Knief said.
Firefighters and EMTs removed Jeansonne from her SUV by stretcher and took her to nearby DeTar Hospital Navarro by ambulance. She and Gonzales, who was walking with a bandaged arm after the crash, suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Knief said.
After the crash, firefighters brushed debris and radiator fluid from the roadway. The impact was severe enough to cause the Buick to spin around and onto the sidewalk.
Knief said he was considering whether to issue a citation.
