It was reported that a 44-year-old woman sustained life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle accident on Riverland Road.
According to the police report, the accident occurred when a 2010 Ford Explorer was heading northbound on Riverland Road near Southwest 20th Street. A 30-year-old man reportedly drove the SUV.
