A two car crash sent a man to the hospital and slowed down lunchtime traffic.

According to Richlands Police Officer Roger Davis, the driver of a black Acura from Maryland, 20-year-old Kayla Trent, turned from the wrong lane in front of a silver Chevy Cruise headed the same direction on Highway 258.

It happened around noon on Wednesday.

Both cars ended up on Huffmantown Road, blocking one lane of traffic for about an hour.

A man who was a passenger in Trent's car was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police say the 20-year-old is charged with illegal lane change.
