Two women were injured when the pickup trucks they were driving collided at the intersection of 10th Street and McClure Road.

The crash happened at about 11:13 a.m. Tuesday, said Lt. Matt Myers, public information officer for the Columbus Police Department.

Elissa Morris, a 30-year-old Nineveh resident, told police she was westbound on 10th Street in her black 2007 GMC Sierra, Myers said. As she approached McClure Road, she said she had the green light for westbound traffic and went into the intersection, where she collided with a 1990 Ford Ranger driven by 29-year-old Columbus resident Marci Ogle, 71 N. Hughes St.

Ogle told police that she was northbound on McClure Road but had stopped at the stoplight at the intersection with 10th Street, Myers said. When the light changed green, she proceeded into the intersection and was struck by Morris’ vehicle.

A witness, who was driving a car that was behind Morris, said the light had turned red for westbound 10th Street traffic when Morris pulled into the intersection, Myers said.

Ogle suffered cuts on her head, and Morris complained of neck pain. Both were taken to Columbus Regional Hospital, where they were treated and released, said Paige Harden, spokeswoman for CRH.

Morris’ truck suffered severe damage to its front, and Ogle’s truck suffered extensive damage to the passenger side, Myers said.
