Wednesday morning Scottsbluff accident injures two

Two people have been transported to Regional West following a Wednesday morning traffic accident.

First responders were dispatched to the intersection of Highway 26 and Avenue B shortly before 6 a.m. for a two vehicle accident.

Scottsbluff Police Corporal Krisa Brass says 23-year-old Mckenna Mendoza of Scottsbluff was driving southbound on Avenue B and failed to stop at the blinking red light and entered the intersection. Her car was then struck by an eastbound Nissan Altima driven by 36-year-old Sarah Twombly of Scottsbluff.

Airbags were deployed in both vehicles, and Twombly was wearing her seat belt.  Both drivers were taken to the hospital by Valley Ambulance with undisclosed injuries, and crews cleared the scene around 6:45 a.m.

As of 9:30 a.m. a Regional West Nursing Supervisor said that Mendoza was listed in good condition, and Twombly was not listed in the directory.

Corporal Brass says that Mendoza received a citation for failure to obey to a traffic control device.
