A Friday evening crash in Wausau injured three people. A 16-year-old driver was traveling northbound in the right lane of First Avenue, a one-way street. She attempted to make a left turn onto Norton Street from the right lane, and crashed into a vehicle that was traveling in the left lane. The collision caused the vehicle in the left lane to lose control and spin around, hitting two trees before coming to rest in a yard on Norton Street. The 44-year-old driver and her two passengers were taken to Aspirus Wausau Hospital to receive medical attention. The 16-year-old driver was cited for an improper left-hand turn.
