While traveling on Canyon Crest Drive just north of Central Avenue in a blue BMW X3 crossover, the woman slowed down to turn into the driveway of the Canyon Crest Towne Center and was rear-ended by a gray Toyota Sequoia. The impact caused the BMW to spin out and overturn in the southeast corner of the center. Police officers found the women hanging upside down from their seat belts and cut them free. They were taken to an area hospital to receive treatment for their injuries. Authorities are investigating the crash.
