All of the occupants of two vehicles collided at the intersection of Carmichael Road and Center Drive at 8:10 a.m. Thursday, June 25, escaped serious injury.


Regina E. Elmer, 20, Lakeland, Minn., was driving south on Carmichael in a Ford Focus station wagon when Bradley T. Janicki, 25, Hudson, in a northbound Dodge Caravan, attempted a left turn onto Center Drive in front of her.

Elmer's car struck the side of Janicki's minivan, causing the minivan to spin around and overturn on Center Drive.

Neither Elmer nor the three passengers in her car were injured. All of them were wearing seat belts.

Janicki was reported to have sustained minor injuries. He was on his feet shortly after the crash, however, and didn't require immediate medical treatment.

Janicki was ticketed for alleged failure to yield right of way at an intersection.

The passengers in Elmer's car were twin brothers Benjamin and Luke Wieker, 19, Hudson, and Chelsea Gendusa, 18, Amherst.
