A two-car collision at about 9:15 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, shut down traffic to one lane in each direction as Marble Falls police and EMS responded.

One of the vehicles was northbound on 281 and Lantana in the left-turn lane. The other vehicle was southbound in the outside lane. The southbound vehicle entered the intersection as the signal turned yellow. The northbound vehicle turning onto Lantana failed to yield, pulled out and was struck by the southbound vehicle. The southbound vehicle rolled over into the culvert.

Injuries were reported on the scene. An ambulance was sent to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Marble Falls with one “non-emergency” patient.

Wreckers hauled away both vehicles.
