FARMINGTON — Police on Wednesday evening diverted eastbound traffic on Piñon Hills Boulevard through the San Juan College campus after a crash at the intersection of Piñon Hills and College boulevards.
The wreck occurred at about 5:15 p.m., when a green pick-up truck heading east on Piñon Hills and a westbound Subaru passenger car turning south onto College collided, said Farmington police Sgt. Dave Monfils.
He said witnesses reported the light was yellow when both cars entered the intersection. Each car had a single occupant.
After the crash, Monfils said the Subaru caught on fire, and bystanders pulled the driver from the car and put out the flames.
He said the driver of the Subaru may have a broken leg.
Both drivers were taken to San Juan Regional Medical Center.
Police are still investigating the crash, and no citations have been issued.
"We want to get everybody's side of the story," Monfils said.
Police started reopening streets near the intersection at about 6 p.m.
