UPDATE: The Salina Police Department has corrected the date of the accident.

. . .

A Salina woman was injured in a two-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon in central Salina.

According to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester, a power outage in Salina caused several intersections' stop lights to be inactive, including those at the intersection of South Front Street and East Crawford Street.

A 2010 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Tammy Jones, of Salina, was stopped at the intersection facing southbound on South Front Street. Jones didn't see vehicles approaching from the east and attempted to go through the intersection, Forrester explained. The Malibu was struck by an eastbound 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Larry Hackney, of Salina.

Jones suffered minor injuries but was not transported to the hospital, Forrester noted. Hackney was not injured.

The Mailbu sustained front-end damage and the Grand Cherokee sustained front driver's side damage, Forrester noted. Both were towed from the scene.

Neither driver was cited, he added.
