At around 1:38 p.m., a red Mazda and a silver Ford collided.
One driver suffered a serious back injury and was unable to exit their vehicle on their own free will.
Paramedics were dispatched to the crash site to provide medical aid and eventually transport the victim via ambulance to a nearby hospital.
It appeared this was a rear-end collision, however, that statement cannot be confirmed at this time as the investigation remains ongoing.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those injured and not found responsible for the crash may be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
