One person was seriously injured Thursday in a “failure to yield” car accident with two additional vehicles, but drugs and/or alcohol are not considered factors in the crash.

When police arrived on scene, all three vehicles were in the southeast corner of the intersection.

Failure to yield reported by witnesses
