PLANO – A 57-year-old Plano woman was hospitalized after she failed to yield to another vehicle and sideswiped it Tuesday afternoon in Plano, police said.

Maricela Valenciana, 57, of the 3600 block of Thomas Court in Plano, was driving a gray Toyota west on Route 34 just before 4:50 p.m. Tuesday when she tried to enter a left turn lane near Mitchell Drive, according to a news release from the Plano Police Department.

At the same time, a gray Chevrolet was merging into the left turn lane. Valenciana failed to yield to the car that was merging, causing the two to sideswipe each other, police said.

Valenciana was transported to an area hospital, and a citation for failing to reduce speed to avoid a crash is pending. The other driver was not injured.

The Little Rock-Fox Fire Protection District also responded to the crash.
