Placeholder Image
A woman who police say ran a red light, caused a collision that injured three, including a 13-month old baby.
None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, according to the Turlock Police Department.
Just before 6:30 p.m. Monday, a woman driving a Saturn sedan eastbound on Christoffersen Parkway ran a red light and crashed into a Chevy van that was headed northbound on Colorado Avenue.
The collision toppled the van onto its side and the Turlock City Fire Department had to cut the roof off to extricate the driver.
The male driver of the van was not seriously injured, despite not having worn a seat belt, the police report stated.
The woman driving the Saturn suffered a broken leg. Her 13-month old baby girl had abrasions to her face. According to the police report, the child received the injuries because her child safety seat was not properly installed and hit the back of the driver’s seat during the impact.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash. It is unknown if any citations were issued.
