Authorities in Montgomery County say one person was transported to the hospital for treatment of unknown, possible injuries, following a collision Tuesday afternoon south of Red Oak. The Sheriff’s Department says the crash happened just after 4:30-p.m., at the intersection of Highway 48 and 270th Street.

According to the Sheriff’s report, the collision occurred as a vehicle being driven by 56-year-old Rebecca S. Wright, of Red Oak, was traveling south and was in the process of turning left onto 270th street. At about the same time, a second southbound vehicle, driven by 73-year-old Louis M. Saner, of Shenandoah, attempted to pass.

Wright was transported to the Montgomery County Memorial Hospital by Red Oak Rescue. Saner, who was not injured, was issued a citation for passing at an intersection.
