A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of 15th and Iowa streets sent two women to the hospital Friday afternoon. About 12:45 p.m., Valerie Hird, 20, Lawrence, was heading north on Iowa driving a 1991 Chevy Lumina when she hit a vehicle stopped for the light at the intersection of 15th and Iowa streets. The vehicle that was hit, a 2000 Honda CRV, was being driven by Lia Faber, 21, Wichita. Both women were transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Hird was given a citation for following too closely, police said.
Hird and Faber had both been treated and released by the hospital by Friday night.
