RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Two people were injured following a two-vehicle accident in Mount Pleasant on Friday.

Crews responded to the intersection of Graceland Boulevard and Perry Avenue shortly after 4 p.m. for a report of a two-vehicle accident where one driver was trapped.

Upon arrival, crews discovered that a 22-year-old Mount Pleasant woman operating a Saturn Ion attempted to turn westbound onto Graceland Boulevard from Perry Avenue. As she attempted the turn, a Dodge Caravan being operated by a 35-year-old Racine man was traveling eastbound on Graceland Boulevard. He collided with the driver of the Saturn Ion.
