Two ambulances were called to 11th Street and 45th Avenue in Rock Island for a multiple-vehicle crash that slowed traffic through the intersection.

According to a witness, an SUV heading northbound was waiting to turn left from 11th Street to 45th Avenue. A yellow car was stopped at the intersection heading east on 45th and attempted to cross, pulling in front of the SUV waiting to turn. A van traveling north in right lane struck the yellow car and ended up hitting a pole, while the car ended up near the Circle K sign with side damage.

The driver of the yellow car at first left the scene, but returned. The driver of the van was transported to a hospital by ambulance with a neck brace, while the passenger of the car was transported by ambulance with unknown injuries.
