A two-vehicle crash occurred on U.S. Highway 491 at the intersection of County Road L about 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

There were no injuries, said Trooper Aaron Loving.

He said the crash occurred when a green Chevy sedan was northbound and the driver attempted to take a left onto Road L. The sedan collided with a southbound white Hyundai.

Investigators were determining whether both vehicles were using the median to take left turns onto Road L. The intersection is offset, Loving said.

Loving said the driver who failed to yield likely would be ticketed.

Emergency medical personnel responded to the crash, but medical transport was refused by all parties.

Air bags deployed in Chevy sedan. Identities of the drivers and passengers were not available.

The Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office and Cortez Fire Protection District also responded to the crash.
