COLUMBIA — Two cars collided with each other at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Street on Wednesday afternoon.
Trainio Williams, 34, was hit by an oncoming vehicle while driving his girlfriend’s car around 2 p.m., Beth Small, a community service aide, said.
Williams was driving through the intersection when 23-year-old Timothy Audrain slid into the intersection though a red light and hit Williams’ passenger’s side, Small said.
Alison Thompson, 23, was also in Audrain's car.
Both cars were damaged from the collision. Williams’ girlfriend’s blue Hyundai Elantra was dented in the front passenger side, and Audrain’s green Ford Escort had scratches on the front left bumper.
Initially both parties said they were not injured and decided not to file a report once officials arrived at the accident, Small said. Audrain and Thompson then left the scene.
Small, a fire truck and an ambulance were called to the scene around 2:30 p.m. after receiving a phone call that Williams was not feeling well, Small said.
Williams was taken by ambulance to University Hospital in a neck brace.
Audrain and Thompson were also called back to the scene once Williams and his girlfriend wanted to file a report.
Williams has since been treated and released from University Hospital.
