Authorities say one person was hospitalized following a Tuesday midday accident in northeast Scottsbluff.
Shortly after 12:15 p.m., Scottsbluff Police and Sheriff Deputies responded to a Highland Road just south of Lacy Park. Traffic was closed in both directions while first responders assisted.
The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office says a Jeep driven by 22-year-old James Cabral crossed the center line and sideswiped a gray Ford Taurus driven by 25-year-old Nohemi Aguirre, causing it to rest in the north ditch. Crews were on scene for approximately one hour, and both vehicles were towed from the scene.
Cabral was cited for willful reckless driving and was transported to Regional West. He was not listed in the hospital directory Tuesday night.
Scottsbluff Rural Fire and Valley Ambulance also responded to the accident.
