Wednesday, May 1—An 8-year-old girl complained of pain after a two-vehicle accident at 10th and H streets about 2:30 p.m. today.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Dan Matthews, a 16-year-old male driving south on 10th Street pulled into the turn lane as he approached the H Street intersection. The teen saw a van pull up to the intersection on H Street and, while he was concentrating on that vehicle, the teen didn’t look to see an oncoming northbound vehicle on 10th Street as he started to turn onto H, and the two vehicles collided.

Neither the woman driving the northbound Acura nor the 10-year-old boy in the vehicle were injured, Matthews reported. The 8-year-old girl also was a passenger in the Acura. No other injuries were reported.

shoveled dirt around and poured sand on the leak so it did not spread to a nearby ditch.

    How many more accidents need to happen st this intersection before a light goes in? And 16th and Main?

    Two accidents at the 10th and H intersection in one day. What will it take to get that traffic light installed?

    A light was approved by the planning group several months ago, and should be installed soon. I know a lot of people in this town hate to see more traffic lights, and I am one of them, but it is badly needed at this intersection.
