Two Great Bend women received minor injuries when cars collided Tuesday afternoon at Lakin and Harrison.

Police were dispatched at 4:37 p.m. According to Sgt. Chris Smee, Arlene Drake, 83, was driving east on Lakin Ave. in a white 1998 Ford, failed to yield at the stop sign, and entered the intersection. Her car was then struck by a red 1979 Oldsmobile driven by Ona Eveleigh, 79. The Drake vehicle then struck the corner of a house at 1302 Harrison St.

Both women refused to be treated or transported by Emergency Medical Service, but Drake was later taken to Great Bend Regional Hospital by personal vehicle to be checked for her minor injuries.

Smee said the case is still pending investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to call dispatch, 793-1920, or the Great Bend Police Department, 793-4120.
