FAIRFIELD — A morning crash Wednesday at Highway 12 and Beck Avenue tied up traffic and sent two people to NorthBay Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening.
A white Chevrolet sedan was traveling northbound at about 9:08 a.m. on Beck Avenue and a burgundy Toyota Camry eastbound on Highway 12, Sgt. Sam Rowland said. One of the drivers apparently failed to yield to a red light and the two vehicles collided in the intersection, Rowland said.
Both vehicles contained only the drivers. Emergency crews had to cut off the door from the white Chevrolet sedan to reach the female driver, Rowland said. The white Chevrolet was hit on the driver’s side. Both drivers complained of pain.
The white Chevrolet was still extending into one lane of westbound Highway 12 traffic shortly before 10 a.m., backing up traffic in that direction. Police directed traffic.
Witnesses to the crash can contact police to give information at 428-7524.
