Two people were transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in a two-car crash that occurred about 5:50 p.m. Friday on Route 3 at North Main Street in Columbia.
The cars involved were a 2003 Buick Park Avenue driven by Mark Foster, 58, of St. Louis, and a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Kaitlyn Wilhelm, 16, of Columbia.
North Main Street was closed to traffic at Route 3 for a brief time as crews worked to clear the crash.
Wilhelm and a passenger in her car were transported to a St. Louis hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash. Foster refused medical transport.
Police said the Malibu was traveling south on Route 3 and was turning left onto North Main when it collided with the Buick, which was traveling north on Route 3.
Wilhelm was cited for failure to yield-turning left.
Columbia police, fire and EMS handled the crash, which was the second at that intersection within two hours. For more on the earlier accident, click here.
