A Craig man has been charged with a traffic infraction in a two-car accident that occurred early Sunday that injured one teen.
Guy Wayne Dove, 29, was issued a summons for failure to yield at a flashing red light after his Chevy Cavalier broadsided a pickup truck with five teens riding in it at the intersection of Sixth Street and Yampa Avenue.
Dove, who was driving westbound on Sixth Street at 2 a.m., collided into the truck at 10 m.p.h. as it moved southbound on Yampa Avenue at 25 m.p.h., according to Craig police.
The collision sent the truck into a quarter roll
on its side.
Three teens riding in the bed of the pickup were thrown -- leaving a 15-year-old boy injured with a broken wrist.
He was transported to The Memorial Hospital.
"We're very lucky with those kids in the back being thrown," Craig Police Sgt. Bill Leonard said.
A second boy with a possible injury declined medical treatment.
The traffic infraction carries $56 in fines and surcharges plus three points on a driver's license upon conviction.
