The driver and passenger of that vehicle (Pontiac Sunfire), a man and a woman, were each transported to the hospital for further medical assessment of what police believe to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Kia Sportage was medically assessed and released at the scene by emergency paramedics.”
