One injured following crash in North Long Beach, police say

A woman was taken to a local hospital Thursday morning following a two-vehicle crash in North Long Beach, authorities said.

Police say the traffic collision occurred sometime after 10 a.m. in the area of Cherry Avenue and Rogers Street. The driver of the car carrying the victim was exiting a lot on Rogers Street and attempting to make a right onto Cherry Avenue when a driver going southbound on Cherry Avenue struck their car, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

When officers arrived at the crash around 10:07 a.m., they located a woman suffering from minor injuries as a result of the crash, LBPD spokesperson Richard Mejia said. The victim was transported by the Long Beach Fire Department to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries, authorities said. The drivers, who remained on the scene and cooperated with the investigation, did not report any injuries.

Officers determined that distracted driving, speeding and impairment do not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the investigation is ongoing, according to the LBPD.
