GRAFTON—First responders were called to the scene of a two-vehicle, T-bone type accident, at approximately 2:45 p.m., Tuesday afternoon.

According to Deputy Chief Michael Kochka, with the Grafton Police Department, a Ford Taurus that was traveling on West Main Street was struck in the driver’s side door, by a Dodge Ram 2500, while attempting to turn left onto North Pike Street (U.S. Route 50 West).

Both of the drivers were transported, by ambulance, to Grafton City Hospital for minor injuries, and to be medically cleared, according to Kochka.

Kochka reported that no citations were issued in the accident, but the driver of the Ford Taurus was found at fault for the collision for failure to yield right-of-way to oncoming traffic and entering an intersection without sufficient space.

The Grafton Police Department, Taylor County Sheriff’s Department, Grafton Fire Department and Taylor County Emergency Squad all responded to the scene.
