An collision snarled traffic at a busy intersection Thursday afternoon as schools were dismissing classes.
Maricopa Police Department reported no serious injuries, though two juveniles in one of the vehicles complained of stomach pain and were treated on scene at Honeycutt and Porter roads.
According to MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado, a southbound van on Porter collided with a northbound Jeep trying to turn left onto Honeycutt Road. The juveniles were passengers in the Jeep. The investigation became a matter of what color the north-south traffic lights were.
“The driver of the Jeep stated the light was red,” Alvarado said. “The driver of the van said the light was yellow. An independent witness at the scene said the light was green.”
Police sided with the independent witness and cited the Jeep driver for causing an accident.
Neither vehicle sustained serious damage and both were able to be driven from the scene.
