  • A 21-year-old Townsend woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries Thursday in a two-car crash on Bunker Hill Road.
    The collision occurred at the intersection of Bunker Hill Road and Sandhill Drive about 3:30 p.m. when a 2000 Volkswagon Passat driven by a 17-year-old Middletown girl drove into the passenger side of a 1998 Honda Civic driven by the Townsend woman.
    Middletown Police Department spokesman Lt. Michael Kelly said the  teen had been driving south on Sandhill Drive and attempted to cross over the westbound lane of Bunker Hill Road when her Volkwagon stuck the Honda.
    Both vehicles ended up in the eastbound lane of Bunker Hill Road, which was closed for about an hour while police investigated the crash and cleared the scene.
    The Townsend woman was taken to Christian Hospital, where she was treated for a fractured elbow, a sprained wrist and bruises, according to a family member.
    The teen, who was not injured in crash, was cited for failing to remain stopped, Kelly said.
