A truck from Carl's Towing and Recovery tows one of two cars involved in an accident that stopped traffic temporarily at the intersection of Providence Road and Worley Street on Friday.

COLUMBIA — A two-car collision Friday at Providence Road and Worley Street ended up with one car landing in the front yard of a family home and the other near Douglass Park.

Renee Sanders, who lives in the house, said the cars crashed in the intersection around 12:18 p.m. when one tried to turn left on Worley. The car that spun into her front yard hit a metal porch support.

"I heard my sister screaming, and when I came out there was a car right here," said Sanders, pointing to the porch at 415 N. Providence Road.

She said seven family members lived in the house but not all were home at the time.

The two drivers were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, said Capt. John Metz of the Columbia Fire Department.

One was a pregnant woman who complained of stomach pains, and the other was a women who said she hurt her leg on the dashboard of her car, Sanders said.

The only damage to the house was the bent porch support and crushed landscaping. Both cars were towed from the scene.
