No one was injured in a two-vehicle accident at Oak and South 17th streets in Niles at approximately 3:45 p.m. Thursday.

According to K-9 officer Shane Daniels of the Niles Police Department, a maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Lamond Preswood Jr., 16, of Niles, was stopped facing north on South 17th Street and a blue Chevrolet pickup driven by Kyle Glaser, 22, of Niles, was stopped facing south on 17th Street. When the stoplight turned green, Preswood turned left onto Oak Street in front of Glaser, who had the right of way.

The vehicles hit each other head on; both sustained front-end damage. A crosswalk signal pole was also knocked down during the crash.

Glaser had one passenger in his vehicle, Eddie Tubbs, 22, of Elkhart. Preswood had been driving his mother, Brenda Smith, to the hospital prior to the accident because she was having asthma problems. Southwestern Michigan Community Ambulance

Service transported her to Lakeland Community Hospital for her non-accident-related health problems.

Preswood was issued a citation for failing to yield and an expired license plate.

The Michigan State Police Niles Post and Niles Fire Department also responded to the scene.
