A 32-year-old woman and two adolescent passengers, ages 9 and 10, were taken to WCA Hospital following a two-vehicle accident Thursday.
Around 5 p.m. Jamestown police responded to the intersection of Woodworth and McDaniel avenues for a report of a personal injury motor vehicle accident.
According to police, a 2001 Ford Mustang convertible was traveling west on Woodworth Avenue struck a 2005 Ford Taurus that was traveling southbound on McDaniel Avenue after the Mustang failed to stop at the stop sign on Woodworth.
