A sedan and a pick up were involved in a head on collision around noon today on the Main Hill Road.


Police said Merch Lopez, 81, was driving eastbound when he attempted a u-turn in the sedan in front of Gregory Kennard, 54, who was traveling westbound in the truck when the vehicles collided.

Lopez, who police said will be cited, complained of minor injuries and was transported to the Los Alamos Medical Center by the fire department.

A second wreck occurred shortly after this one when an approaching vehicle crashed into the rear end of a vehicle halted in the traffic line waiting for clearance from the first accident.

An ambulance was called to the scene to transport a small child complaining of minor injuries.
