Injuries reported in Monday crashes

A woman suffered a minor head injury in a two-car crash Monday afternoon in Long Beach.

LONG BEACH — A woman was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries after a two-vehicle crash near Pioneer Road and Washington Avenue in Long Beach on Monday afternoon.

At about 1:15 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 a woman was driving north on Washington Avenue in a Saturn Vue SUV when she pulled into the path of man driving east on Pioneer Road in a Honda Civic.

“She just didn’t see him, pulled out in from of him,” said Long Beach Police Chief Flint Wright.

The driver of the SUV, a 65-year-old woman, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of a minor cut to her head.

“I think she banged her head on the seat rest,” Wright said. “Nothing serious.”

The driver of the Civic, a 21-year-old man, along with two passengers, one in each vehicle, didn’t suffer any injuries. Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene. Long Beach Police, Long Beach Fire Department and Medix Ambulance responded to the call.

Shortly after the Long Beach collision, another two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Birch and 227th resulted injuries and the summoning of two ambulances. There was no immediate word about details of the collision and the condition of those transported for medical attention.
