One person was taken to the hospital in serious condition after a Friday night collision in the northwest part of the valley.

The incident occurred at 7:41 p.m., when a 2003 Toyota Avalon traveling north on Cliff Shadows Parkway, near west Cheyenne Avenue, crossed the double yellow center line and hit a 2015 Nissan Versa Note traveling south in the single southbound travel lane, police said.
