Anniston police report that a motorcyclist ran a red light and collided with a Jeep Cherokee in the intersection of Quintard Avenue and 22nd Street Friday afternoon, sustaining a broken leg but no life-threatening injuries.
Around 2:15 p.m. Friday Laquita Mack, 19, of Anniston, was turning left onto 22nd Street from the northbound lane of Quintard when Jared Warren, 35, of Anniston, apparently ran the light while traveling south on Quintard and struck Mack’s car, according to police reports. Mack did not sustain any injuries and Warren was transported to Regional Medical Center with what looked like a broken tibia, police said.
Police said the accident did not cause a major traffic jam on Quintard, because the officers were able to clear the intersection fairly quickly.
