Vehicle crashes into business — again

Even the person Jack Anderson was talking to on the phone heard the crash Thursday when a woman driving a Ford F-150 crashed into the pole outside of Victory Vision.

Hayden resident JoAnn Miller, 54, was cited for disregarding a traffic signal when she ran the red light on the corner of Yampa Avenue and Victory Way.

Parish Terry, 38, turned left onto Victory Way from Yampa Avenue just as Miller went through the light, and the two collided.

Injuries were minor. The only person transported to the hospital was Terry’s wife, Paula, who was treated and released.

The accident was the second on that corner in two weeks and the second in eight months that has damaged a post in front of the Victory Way eye glass store. On Aug. 16, a man driving a Ford Taurus hit a post in front of the store.

“People just don’t pay attention,” Anderson said.

He works at Solutions Oriented Systems and said that being a few doors down from Victory Vision is entertaining.

The business has a camera trained on the intersection, but it is not hooked up to a video recorder.

Craig Police Sgt. Brian Soper said the intersection is not the prob-lem.

“I don’t think it’s the way it’s set up,” he said. “There is a lot of traffic there, and sooner or later you’re going to have an accident.”
