No injuries were reported Thursday in a two-vehicle accident in Creston.

According to a Creston Police report, at approximately 8:54 p.m. a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Rodrick D. Rand, 44, of Creston, was northbound on Elm Street when it struck a 2008 Toyota Yaris, driven by Prestyn T. Perkins, 17, of Creston, who was westbound on Irving Street. Rand attempted to avoid hitting the Yaris but could not stop in time. The impact of the collision spun the Yaris around before it came to a stop facing east.

Perkins told officers he stopped at the stop sign and looked both ways, but did not see the Silverado. Rand stated the Yaris failed to stop at the sign. According to the report, contributing factors, both attributed to Perkins, were failure to yield the right of way from the stop sign and driver inexperience.
