With the sunrise still low in the sky, Washington City Police officers responded to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Telegraph Street and 300 East Wednesday.
At around 8 a.m., a gray Volkswagen passenger car turned in front of a 2009 gray Nissan Altima, Washington City Police Lt. Kory Klotz said.
“The Volkswagen, driven by a 22-year-old female, was in the turn lane to head south on 300 East,” he said. “The driver had a flashing yellow yield arrow to turn left. The male driver of the Altima was traveling eastbound on Telegraph through a green light at the intersection when the female driving the Volkswagen decided to turn left when it was clearly not safe to make the turn.”
What was originally reported as a head-on collision was determined at the scene to be more of a glancing blow to the passenger side of the Volkswagen.
