Two drivers escaped serious injury Tuesday afternoon when a motorist ran a red-light and was struck by an oncoming vehicle, causing his van to overturn.

The driver of the 1998 Chevy van, Johnny Lee Gilliam, 50, was cited for violation of due care and failure to obey a traffic device. The driver of the 2018 Dodge Durango that collided with the van at the intersection of Jackson and Carroll, Melissa Drennon, 42, of Winchester, told police she had nowhere to go when the van entered the intersection in her path.
