3 injured in 2-vehicle accident in Anaheim

Police are investigating a two-vehicle accident that left three people injured, police said.

The accident occurred about 12:30 p.m. Monday when a Toyota Camry and a Mercury Mountaineer collided at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and State College Boulevard, said Anaheim police Sgt. Rick Martinez.
Based on the initial investigation, it appears the Camry was traveling eastbound on Lincoln Avenue and was going to turn left onto State College Boulevard. The Mountaineer was traveling westbound on Lincoln through the intersection, Martinez said.

Upon impact, the Mountaineer rolled over and the female driver was taken to a hospital to be treated for unknown injuries.

Martinez said it appears the woman is a crossing guard based on some of the items in her SUV, including a stop sign and a crossing guard vest.

The two people in the Camry suffered minor injuries but were not hospitalized, Martinez said.

“We don’t know who had the right of way,” Martinez said, adding that a witness told police the Mountaineer may have entered the intersection on a red light, but that information is unconfirmed.

The accident forced the closure of all westbound lanes on Lincoln Avenue but all lanes reopened shortly after 1 p.m.
The accident is under investigation.
