2 injured when car collides with beer truck

A 21-year-old man suffered head injuries when he failed to yield at a stop sign and his car was struck by a beer truck, Metro Police said.

The truck driver also was taken to the hospital with less serious injuries, police said.

The accident happened at 5:46 a.m. at the intersection of Jones Boulevard and Windmill Lane in the southwest valley, police said.

It appears the car, heading east on Windmill Lane, ran a stop sign and continued through Jones Boulevard, colliding with the Corona beer truck, Metro Lt. Kasey Matthews said.

Both drivers were transported to University Medical Center, Matthews said.

A mile stretch of Jones Boulevard near the Windmill intersection remains closed to traffic as police investigate.
