The intersection of Northwest Ninth and Connell avenues was closed following the crash.

A crash near Glencoe High School in Hillsboro left at least one woman injured Wednesday afternoon, July 17.

Hillsboro Fire & Rescue reported that three vehicles were involved in the crash at the intersection of Northwest Connell and Ninth avenues, east of McKay Creek.

Sgt. Eric Bunday, spokesman for the Hillsboro Police Department, said a Honda minivan was crossing westbound through the intersection when a Ford F-350 pickup truck ran a stop sign. The pickup struck the minivan, tipping it on its side and knocking it into a third vehicle, a Dodge SUV.

Bunday said the minivan's driver was briefly trapped in her vehicle before being extricated by fire crews. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance for treatment. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening, according to police.

The driver of the pickup remained at the scene and cooperated with police, Bunday said. He is expected to receive a traffic citation for failure to obey a traffic control device.

Bunday said intoxicants are not believed to have been a factor in the crash.

The crash was reported at about 3:56 p.m. Wednesday.

The intersection of Connell and Ninth avenues was closed following the crash. Motorists are advised to take alternate routes and avoid the area.
