Troopers said O'Brien's vehicle crashed into the left front of Jenkins' vehicle in the intersection.

Troopers said O'Brien was evaluated at the scene by West End ambulance personnel but did not require immediate medical attention while Jenkins refused medical treatment for a minor injury. Jenkins had two passengers who were not injured.

Troopers noted that Jenkins was cited.
