Two-Car Collision In Busti Sends Three To WCA

BUSTI – Police and emergency officials responded to a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon that sent multiple people to WCA Hospital.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., a woman – whose name was not released – was traveling southbound on Southwestern Drive when her Dodge Stratus collided with a Chevy Impala traveling westbound on Baker Street.

The woman sustained what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries to her side and neck.

The two occupants of the Impala – whose names were also not released – sustained minor injuries to the knee and face.

All three individuals were transported to WCA Hospital by Lakewood emergency officials.

According to the Lakewood-Busti Police Department, the woman had allegedly stopped at the stop sign at the intersection of Southwestern Drive and Baker Street, but failed to take notice of the westbound vehicle.

She will be charged with failing to yield right of way, police said.

Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and were later towed from the scene.
