No injuries were reported following an accident this (Friday) morning, in Red Oak. According to Red Oak Police, vehicles driven by 73-year old Janis Nelson and 46-year old Amy Johnson, both of Red Oak, collided at the intersection of North 8th Street and Washington Avenue, just before 9-a.m.

Officials say an investigation determined Nelson observed another vehicle coming from the est on East Washington Avenue, as her 2008 Chevy was stopped at the intersection heading south. That vehicle subsequently proceeded to park on East Washington. Nelson continued into the intersection, but didn’t  see Johnson’s vehicle approaching. The resulting collision caused a total of $3,600 damage. Authorities cited Nelson for Failure to Obey a Stop Sign.
