The aftermath of a two-car collision at the intersection of West Broadway and Yorkshire Drive awaits cleanup Monday afternoon. The passenger of the silver car was unharmed, and the passenger of the other car refused medical treatment and was released from the scene.

COLUMBIA – A two-car collision occurred at the intersection of West Broadway and Yorkshire Drive on Monday afternoon.

Jeong Oh, 38, was attempting to make a left turn out of Kelly’s Ridge Apartments while Shanta Robinson, 28, was headed west on West Broadway.

According to Columbia Police Officer John Hoff, who responded to the scene, Oh failed to yield before turning, and her Honda Accord was struck by Robinson's Mercury Sable.

Robinson received medical treatment in an ambulance before being released.

Oh was not treated at the scene. Neither driver was taken to the hospital.

A witness said Monday that this is not the first accident at that same intersection.

According to Hoff, it might be difficult for drivers leaving the apartment complex to see approaching traffic over a hill on West Broadway, where the speed limit is 45 mph. He added, however, that drivers still must yield to oncoming traffic.
