Police asks public, please slow down and not to squeeze traffic lights.

On February 27 at approximately 11 AM, a red Jeep SUV was traveling northbound on China Lake Blvd. when the driver failed to stop at the light. Meanwhile, a full-size Ford truck traveling eastbound on Las Floras Ave on a green light struck the driver’s side of the jeep. The collision caused the jeep to spin counterclockwise and ultimately roll to rest on its passenger side. Of the four individuals and two small dog occupants of the Jeep, only one subject had suffered minor injuries and was transported to Ridgecrest Hospital. The Ridgecrest Police asks the public to please slow down and not try to squeeze traffic lights. / Laura Austin Photo
