Two adults and one teenager sustained minor injuries from a crash that happened Thursday afternoon in Turlock. For one driver, the pain from the injuries were compounded after being hit by the sister of the other driver, according to the Turlock Police Department.

The collision happened around noon Thursday in the area of Angelus and Orange streets. The cause of the collision is still under investigation.

The two vehicles involved in the collision were a Nissan, driven by a 34-year-old woman, and a Lexus, driven by a 21-year-old woman. The teenager was traveling in the Nissan.

Turlock Police spokesperson Sgt. Neil Cervenka said the two drivers sustained non-life threatening injuries and the teenager had a complaint of pain. All three were treated at local hospitals.

During the course of the investigation the sister of the 21-year-old woman, identified as Desiree Angus, 26, of Turlock, arrived at the scene and struck the 34-year-old woman. The assault happened in front of police officers. They went to place Angus under arrest and she resisted, Cervenka said. She was arrested on suspicion of battery and resisting arrest.
