One person was transported by ambulance Thursday morning to Rapid City Regional Hospital after a traffic collision in the intersection of West Main and West Boulevard.
According to Rapid City Police Department spokesman Brendyn Medina, the accident was reported at 7:46 a.m. Witnesses reported that a Chrysler minivan appeared to run a red light while traveling south on West Boulevard, Medina said. A Nissan SUV traveling west on Main Street struck the van, and the van flipped over on its side, according to Medina.
A citation for the red-light violation was issued to 47-year-old Nichole Wager, of Rapid City, the driver of the van. A different person, whose name was not immediately released, was transported to the hospital.
