Police said a 2003 Ford F250 driven by Steven Short, 65, of Hillsboro, was turning left from northbound Admiral Parkway onto Valmeyer Road when it collided with a 2013 Hyundai Accent driven by Richard Hasting, 55, of Bloomsdale, Mo., which was traveling south on Admiral Parkway.

Hasting was transported by ambulance to St. Anthony’s Medical Center in St. Louis County for treatment of unspecified injuries.

Short was cited for failure to yield while turning left.
