A traffic accident that occurred around noon Thursday left traffic lanes on South Monroe Street congested as officers as one lane was closed due to two-car collision.
According to reports, 19-year-old Kayla Lance, of Dodson, failed to obey the traffic sign while traveling east on Louisiana Avenue in a 2003 Ford pick-up truck, and struck a 2005 Chrysler Sebring driven by Justina Rice, of Minden.
Rice was transported to the Northern Louisiana Medical Center for minor to moderate injuries.
