Bryan Accident Sends Six to Hospital

A collision at a busy Bryan intersection sent six people to the hospital late Saturday morning.

According to police, a Mazda car traveling west on Highway 21 around 11:40 a.m. was making an illegal left turn onto Martin Luther King Drive when it collided with a Dodge truck traveling east on 21. Police believe there were green lights in both directions, but that the car did not yield to the on-coming truck.

The car then slammed into a nearby Honda car parked on MLK, which had three people inside.

Those three, along with three in the Mazda, were taken to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center. One of the six was in the critical care unit. Police are looking into whether she had a seat belt on. Her condition is unknown.

The other five suffered minor injuries.

The truck's driver was no seriously hurt, according to police.

Traffic was slowed at the intersection for a couple of hours as emergency crews worked the scene.
