A Fresno man suffered moderate injuries in a collision on Saturday, according to a press release.

At around 5:30 p.m., Jenna Montz, 16, of Artois was driving a Ford F-350 on County Road P north approaching County Road 39 at a stated speed of about 55 mph, according to the California Highway Patrol press release. 

Pablo Torres, 44, of Fresno was driving a Chevy Tahoe approaching County Road P at 55 mph.

According to the press release, Torres activated his left-turn signal and began to slow down as he reached the intersection. Montz reportedly failed to observe the posted stop sign and proceed into the intersection where she broadsided the Chevy. 

After the collision, both parties exited their vehicles and waited for emergency personnel to arrive. 

Torres reportedly suffered injuries including laceration to the knee and elbow and complained of pain to the head and abdomen. 

All parties were wearing their seat belts and no arrests were made.
