A woman motorist driving a northbound 2010 Ford Escape SUV and a southbound 2000 vintage Toyota Corolla collided at Otis Alley and South Main Street Monday afternoon sending the driver of the Escape to the hospital with complaints of neck, back and head pain.

The driver of the Toyota apparently was making a left turn toward the Bank of America parking lot and collided with the oncoming Corolla with major damage resulting to both vehicles.  The driver of the Toyota also complained of back and neck pain but reportedly refused treatment.

She said she was going to the bank, having just spent two hours in a doctor’s office waiting to be seen before the crash.

At noon another crash occurred at Sequoia Avenue and Oregon Street where a man in his mid-40s was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle as he crossed the intersection while ignoring a stop sign, police said.  While his injuries appeared to be minor, he was transported by ambulance for treatment.
