70-year-old Sharon Wright of Deming was transported by ambulance after her 2008 Honda SUV struck a 2002 Chrysler van at the intersection of Solana Road Southwest and the Columbus Highway at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Wright said she was driving south on the Columbus Highway when the van, driven by 51-year-old Doreen Byron of Deming, crossed the road in front of her. Wright said she didn’t have time to avoid the collision.
Byron said she was driving east on Solana, stopped at the intersection of Columbus Road, and then proceeded across the road.
Byron was cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic after stopping.
