MOLINE -- Two people were taken to the hospital after two cars collided at the intersection of 6th Ave. and 19th St. Tuesday afternoon.

Airbags in both cars deployed.

Tar Macias called 911 at 1:25 pm when he heard the crash while inside a nearby restaurant.

Sgt. DeVrieze said the investigation is continuing.

Family members of the BMW driver arrived on the scene after the woman had been transported by ambulance.
