MERCED, CA – An accident was reported in the area of 8th and T Streets in Merced at about 1:30 p.m. this afternoon. Our reporter on-scene stated that a female driver in the red car was in an ambulance and looked to be in her twenties. A witness on-scene did confirm the female driver was moving when she was taken out of the car, but we do not know her condition at this time.
The accident occurred, witnesses believe, when the girl in the red car thought an approaching vehicle was going to stop thinking that the traffic also had a stop sign. But the car approaching the intersection did not have a stop sign. The female driver of the red car is alleged to have pulled out in front of the vehicle when the accident occurred.
