2 injured in crash on Broad Street in SLO

A T-bone collision on Broad Street sent two people to the hospital and snarled lunchtime traffic in San Luis Obispo on Monday.

San Luis Obispo Police Capt. Jeff Smith said two cars were involved in the crash, and both drivers were injured. Information on their conditions was not immediately available, but Smith said neither suffered life-threatening injuries.

The crash happened just before noon between Tank Farm Road and the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport.

Smith said that it appears the crash happened when one of the cars was trying to turn from Aerovista Place onto northbound Broad Street and the driver did not see an oncoming car that was traveling southbound on Broad Street. The car that was traveling southbound on Broad then T-boned the car that was trying to turn.

By about 1:30 p.m., police had cleared the accident, and traffic returned to normal flow in both directions.
