A 26-year-old East Grand Forks woman sustained non life-threatening injuries when her vehicle was broadsided by another vehicle at a Grand Forks intersection around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

Grand Forks Police say Miranda Rowen entered the intersection of 28th Avenue South and South Washington going east on 28th Ave.

Witnesses of the crash say a 2010 Subaru Forester driven by 78-year-old Stuart Larson of Grand Forks ran a red light going south on South Washington and hit Rowens' car, trapping her inside the vehicle.

First aid was administered at the scene and Rowen was extricated from the vehicle using the jaws of life. Both drivers were transported to Altru hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Larson was cited for disregarding a traffic signal.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

The Grand Forks Police Department, Fire Department, and Altru Ambulance were dispatched to the scene.
