Two people were injured in a crash Friday on West Broad Street at the Walmart Drive traffic light.
According to Smithville Patrolman Will Judkins, 66 year old Deborah Culwell of Smithville was in the west bound turning lane on Broad Street in a 2005 Mercury Mountaineer when she turned left at the light into the path of an eastbound 2005 Ford Escape driven by 67 year old Sue Hughes of Smithville.
After impact, the Mountaineer spun around facing east and the Escape came to rest up against a guardrail facing southeast.
Culwell was transported to the hospital by DeKalb EMS. Hughes went to the hospital by a private vehicle.
Culwell was cited for expired tag and no insurance.
Officer Brandon Donnell assisted Officer Judkins in the crash investigation. The Smithville Volunteer Fire Department was also on the scene.
