Serious Traffic Collision on Tuesday (December 5) at Haley St. and N. Salsipuedes.
4:14 p.m. at East Haley Street and North South Salsipuedes, a white Nissan sedan traveling East towards Milpas Street ran a red light, striking a gray silver late model van.
The van was traveling south on Salsipuedes St. and was then struck, going in to a spin. Thus, lightly grazing the left side of stopped Wrangler Jeep facing south, waiting at the light.
Witness statements by the driver of the Wrangler, plus video from the pool supply store verified this as a fact.
One of the two female passengers of the offending vehicle refused medical services, yet may have suffered moderate to severe whiplash. This passenger was not in the driver seat and seemed unaware of her rights and likely did have a need for accurate diagnosis and possible continuing care for her injuries partially due to a socio-linguistic situation.
The passenger of the white sedan that ran to the red light reported feeling neck and shoulder pain yet, stated in Spanish “I cannot miss work tomorrow…”
