The driver of a Saturn was transported to a local hospital after running a stoplight near the Clark County Fairgrounds and colliding with a dump truck Monday afternoon, officials said.

Few details were released, but here's what is known:

Fire District 6, AMR and the Clark County Sheriff's Office responded at 4:03 p.m. to Northeast 10th Avenue and Northeast 179th Street, where the Saturn was off the road, said Battalion Chief Bryan Baum of Fire District 6.

The driver of the Saturn was given a citation for running the stoplight. A passenger in the Saturn started to walk down the street, got into another car and left the scene, said Sgt. K.C. Kasberg with the sheriff's office. Apparently, she had a warrant out for her arrest, Kasberg said.

The names of those involved were not released.
