08.02.2022 | 10:42 PM | TUSTIN – Two people were injured following a crash that crushed the rear of one vehicle and severely damaged the front of another, Tuesday night.
The crash occurred when witnesses say a black Mercedes-Benz sedan rear-ended a white Toyota Prius stopped at the intersection of Walnut and Franklin avenues around 10:42 PM.
The impact of the crash forced the Prius nearly 300 feet ahead while the Mercedes came to rest against a nearby traffic signal pole.
Crews used hand tools to access the elderly male driver of the Prius who appeared dazed as a result of the collision.
Both drivers were eventually transported to area hospitals for treatment.
It remains unclear whether drugs, alcohol, or speed may have been involved in the crash.
