According to officers at the scene, two vehicles crashed just before midnight on Sunday on Bell Road near Harris Hills Lane, and two people were taken to the hospital with injuries.

Police said Deborah Oladele, 23, was driving west on Bell Road when she lost control of her car, hit a curb and drove over the sidewalk. She overcorrected, according to police, and ended up in the wrong lane of traffic, where another driver hit her vehicle.
