Two-vehicle accident on Oak and 5th St., sends one to hospital

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. -- Around 1:30 on Monday afternoon, a two-vehicle collision at 5th and Oak St., sent one person to the hospital.

North Platte Patrol Officer, James Hagen, says a silver SVU heading westbound on 5th St., proceeded to drive after stopping at a stop sign, but Hagen says, the older woman did not see a black SVU on Oak St., also approaching the intersection.

"The black SVU was unable to stop in time, striking the silver vehicle" Hagen said.

The woman driving the silver vehicle was taken to the hospital for complaints of pain in her shoulder.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
