Albany Police, Albany Fire, and Dougherty County EMS all responded to help a person out of the SUV that crashed on North Monroe Street at the intersection of 7th Avenue.

A 2013 Kia Sorento driven by Kay Parker, 52, of Leesburg was traveling west on 7th Avenue preparing to turn left onto North Monroe Street, while a 2007 Hyundai Tucson driven by Aricia King, 46, of Albany was traveling east on 7th Avenue.

Parker turned left into the path of King and caused a collision, Albany Police said.

King and her passengers were transported by ambulance to Phoebe Putney for treatment.

A tow truck came to remove the vehicles. The scene was still active as of 8:25 Thursday morning.
