Two people taken to Mercy for bruising after accident


An abrupt left turn resulted in two people being transported to the hospital, said Lt. Herbert Crosby Jr. of the RCPD.

Crosby said the accident happened around 6:30 on the evening of April 17, when David Thornton, 22, was heading east on Kimball Road. Apparently, Thornoton nearly missed his left turn and made a quick decision to complete the turn when his car collided with the car of Colleen Hill, 53, who was traveling west-bound on Kimball.

Hill and her passenger, James Hill, 56, were both transported to Mercy Regional Health Center due to bruising caused by airbag deployment. Thornton was given a citation for an improper left turn and failure to yield at a left turn.

Vehicle damaged over weekend

Someone dragging an object down the side of a vehicle caused over $1,000 worth of damage over the weekend, according to a report from the RCPD.

Crosby said a 2009 Toyota Corolla, belonging to Joshua Runyan, 23, was reported damaged around 10 p.m. on April 16. The vehicle was parked at 3108 Heritage Court, when the passenger side of the vehicle was scratched by an unknown object.

The incident caused $1,500 worth of damage to the vehicle.
