FARMINGTON – Two women were injured Thursday in a two-car crash in the northeast part of the city.

Farmington police Sgt. Dave Monfils said officers were dispatched at 11:38 a.m. to the intersection of East 20th Street and Sullivan Avenue after receiving reports of the crash.

A bronze Nissan Murano operated by Leah Hight, 68, of Aztec, was headed east on East 20th Street when it was struck by a white Chevrolet Sonic operated by Delaney Bryan,  24, of Aztec, according to Monfils.

Monfils said Bryan and a passenger in the Chevrolet — Lillian Russell, 82, of Aztec — were transported to the San Juan Regional Medical Center to be treated for chest pains.

One of the vehicles involved in a two-car injury crash Thursday is pictured at the intersection of the East 20th Street and Sullivan Avenue in Farmington.

Bryan was cited for a red light violation, according to Monfils.

Monfils said all the occupants were wearing their seatbelts.
