Grass Valley vehicle collision causes minor injuries

Two unidentified drivers sustained minor injuries after colliding with each other at the intersection of Brunswick Road and Idaho Maryland Road in Grass Valley Wednesday morning, according to the Grass Valley Police Department.

Around 10:25 a.m., units responded to the scene of the accident finding a male driver with minor scratches to his hand, and a female driver complaining of pain to her head and neck.

“Upon impact air bags did deploy,” Lt. Steve Johnson said. “A Toyota Highlander actually ended up on the east side of Brunswick Road in a drainage ditch.”

According to Johnson, the female driver of a Toyota Highlander was traveling Northbound on Brunswick Road coming down the hill from Loma Rica Drive at approximately 45 miles per hour. The male driver of a Subaru Legacy was stopped and facing westbound on Idaho Maryland Road, looking to make a left-hand turn to head up the hill southbound on Brunswick Road.

“So as the Highlander was coming down the hill, it looks like the Subaru Legacy pulled out in front of the Highlander, which collided with the Subaru as it was coming down the hill,” Johnson said. “The male driver of the Subaru had superficial scratches to his hand and complained of some pain to his chest from the air bags, but he declined medical treatment.”

With pain to her head and neck, Johnson said the female driver was transported by ambulance to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

“At this point, we don’t believe alcohol or drugs played any factor in the collision,” Johnson added.
