Report says five people were transported to the hospital after a two-car accident on Capper Road intersection.
According to the official report, the accident happened at the intersection of Capper Road and Lem Turner Road. The 28-year-old driver of a GMC SUV ran the red light and was subsequently struck by a Nissan minivan crossing the intersection.
Reports say there were seven occupants in the minivan at the time of the crash. The 31-year-old driver could not avoid hitting the SUV which rapidly intersected its path. The driver of the SUV was the sole occupant in the vehicle when the crash occurred.
EMS reported that the driver of the SUV and four occupants of the minivan were taken to the nearest hospital. The driver of the SUV was reported with a possible head injury according to first responders.
