SALISBURY – Two people escaped injury but were cited by police after a two-car crash Friday at the intersection of Fulton and West Innes streets.
Jose Aguilar, 29, of Salisbury, was traveling on Fulton Street in his fiancee’s 2003 Lexus and was about to turn left onto West Innes Street when he was hit in the side and the car spun around.
Aguilar was cited with not having an operator’s license. The vehicle was damaged on the back passenger’s door on the driver’s side of the vehicle. The tire was bent and car had to be towed away.
Anittie Cuthbertson, 55, of Cleveland, was traveling east on West Innes Street when she ran a red light, said Salisbury Police Officer D.P. Fleming.
The crash occurred at 12:59 p.m.
Cuthbertson was driving a 1998 Nissan, which suffered some damage to the front portion of the vehicle.
She was cited with failing to stop for a stop light.
There were no passengers in Aguilar’s vehicle. A young girl was the only passenger inside Cuthbertson’s car. She was not injured.
Both cars came to rest in the middle of the intersection, forcing officers to direct traffic around the collision.
Members of the Salisbury Fire Department pushed Cuthbertson’s vehicle out of the roadway.
Cathy Aguirre received a frantic phone call from her daughter about the crash. She arrived at the scene with Leonel Aguirre and both were asked to check on Aguilar.
Cathy said her five-month-old grandchild was supposed to be in the car with Aguilar. She was grateful that the child was not there.
“The baby’s car seat would’ve been on that side,” Cathy said.
Cuthbertson declined to comment.
