Columbia police, fire department and EMS personnel responded about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday to a two-vehicle rollover crash on Route 3 at North Main Street.

Police said that a 2017 Ford Fusion driven by Carla O’Brien, 52, of Dupo, was traveling north on Route 3 when a witness said her car ran a red light at North Main Street and collided with a 2015 Toyota RAV4 driven by Virginia Brown, 66, of Staunton, which was crossing the intersection from Sand Bank Road to North Main.

Neither of the drivers required medical transport from the scene.

O’Brien was cited for no valid drivers license and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
