Two teenage females were transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries Monday following a two-vehicle crash in south Roswell.

New Mexico State Police responded to the accident in the area of McGaffey Street and the Relief Route at 5 p.m. The collision involved a blue 2009 Scion XB and a white 1991 Toyota Tacoma, according to information provided by State Police.

The Scion, driven by a 17-year-old female from Roswell, was traveling westbound on McGaffey when the driver failed to stop at a stop sign. The Scion then collided with the Tacoma driven by Joshua Tubbs, 37, of Roswell, who was heading northbound on the Relief Route.

Both drivers were examined by first responders and the driver of the Scion, along with a 17-year-old passenger, were transported to a local hospital.

According to State Police, the 17-year-old driver of the Scion was cited for failure to yield right of way at a stop sign and driving on a restricted driver’s license, because she was operating a vehicle without an adult with a valid driver’s license in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
