The SUV struck a silver pick-up, injuring both drivers. Frederick Ave. was down to one lane in each direction for over an hour as crews worked to get the drivers into awaiting ambulances and clear the scene.

The driver of the SUV, a 20-year-old female, received a citation and was taken to the hospital. The driver of the silver pick-up, a 51-year-old male was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Another major accident occurred at around 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of 22nd and Garfield. A red sedan was traveling northbound on 22nd and crossed the centerline, striking another vehicle.
