A Salina woman was cited for having an obstructed windshield after the pickup she was driving struck a parked flatbed trailer in north Salina early Saturday morning.

Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning that Cecilly Mallon, 62, of Salina, was westbound in the 200 block of Gold Street when the 1999 Ford F150 pickup she was driving struck a parked flatbed trailer. He said that apparently Mallon didn't get her windshield cleaned off and didn't see the trailer. The accident occurred at approximately 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Forrester said.

Mallon was transported to Salina Regional Health Center with unknown injuries, he said.

The pickup suffered extensive front-end damage and had to be towed, Forrester added.
