Generic police tape

Three people were taken to area hospitals Tuesday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Glascow and North Navarro streets.

A man driving a black Dodge Charger was transported to Citizens Medical Center, while a female driver and passenger in a silver Chevrolet Colorado LT truck were taken to Detar Hospital Navarro, said Samantha Williams, an officer with the Victoria Police Department. All three suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

The identities of the people involved were not available Tuesday night.

Williams said the Chevrolet truck was southbound on North Navarro Street when the Dodge Charger collided with the vehicle while trying to turn left onto North Navarro Street off Glascow Street.

The driver of the Dodge Charger failed to yield the right of way, but Williams said she decided not to issue him a citation at the time of the crash because both parties were injured and had their vehicles towed.

Officials responded to the crash about 3 p.m. Officers redirected traffic at the intersection while the Victoria Fire Department cleared debris.

This is a traffic light intersection, so failure to yield the right-of-way would have to involve running the red light if the accident actually happened as described. Yet no citation to the offending driver? Just because he got a boo-boo and damage to his car? This is getting to be commonplace with VPD. What's up with that?

Glenn, they pick and choose who gets a citation. I agree with what you've commented. If you have a light out,don't use your turn signal soon enough etc.. they'll make sure you get a citation. With all the wrecks happening lately, I think there has been one time, that a citation was handed out.

Brian -- In order to "pick and choose" there has to be some sort of criteria for who gets a citation. If running a red light causing an accident resulting in injuries and vehicular damage doesn't meet the criteria, then what does?

I agree.
