Police and fire personnel were called at 10:23PM Thursday night to the intersection of Lake Boulevard and Panorama Drive. 21-year-old Blaine Coon had been westbound on Saint Nicholas in a Ford pickup when he apparently blew through the stop sign onto Lake Boulevard into the path of a northbound Honda CRV driven by 18-year-old Ariana Coonce. She and her passenger, 18-year-old Dorothy Graunstadt, both sustained minor injuries. Coon allegedly tried to leave but was detained by bystanders at the scene until officers arrived. He was arrested for DUI causing injury.
