Failure to stop

• Four people were injured in a car accident in Astoria that sent a fire hydrant flying into a parked car on Sunday.

Around 3:45 p.m., a vehicle driving southbound on Marine Drive was hit after another vehicle traveling west on Marine Drive failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Eighth and Bond streets. The car driving onto Bond Street swerved into a fire hydrant, which dislodged and flew into a nearby parked car.

Both drivers and each of their passengers were taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital for injuries. Janet Palmeter, 79, of Cannon Beach, was cited for failing to stop at a traffic control device.
