A two car crash sent a Salina woman to the hospital last Friday.
The Saline County Sheriff’s Office reports that 49-year-old Christine Matinez was transported to Salina Regional Health Center with a headache and for treatment on her left hand after a collision Friday morning at 9:30am with a car driven by 67-year-old Janice Fouard of Brookville.
Deputies say both were driving westbound on Crawford when Martinez slowed her 1996 Buick Century to make a right turn onto Halstead Road, and Fouard was distracted for a moment by a passenger in her 2012 Ford Escape and clipped the car ahead of her.
Authorities say everyone had seat belts on and both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
